MINNEAPOLIS, MN - September 3, 2019 - Kipsu, the leading platform of Real Time Engagement for service industry professionals, recently opened a new office in the Minneapolis Warehouse District to accommodate their rapid growth and continue to access the Twin Cities' talent pool. This is Kipsu's fourth office expansion in five years, but this new space leaves room for more than 50 future new employees.
The new office doubles the office footprint and supports the company's growth strategy. Kipsu's recent strategic partnerships with hospitality behemoths and new releases of its flagship engagement product have fueled the company's growth and need for space. Chris Smith, CEO and co-founder of Kipsu, reaffirmed the company's commitment to Minneapolis.
"Minneapolis is such an underrated hub of talent and is part of the 'secret sauce' that keeps us years ahead of the competition in our space. The area is loaded with diverse talent from top-tier universities and global corporate leaders. We've noticed that we're even attracting talent from the coasts who we've convinced to give the midwest a second-look with its comparatively affordable cost of living, unrivaled education system, and strong economy," said Smith. "We're excited to tap even more of the area's rising talent to fuel Kipsu's growth."
