“Australia was the perfect market to launch in next. After a successful 2015 launching in the UK, Nordics and France, we knew that Australia would be a great community because of its high smartphone penetration and their reputation for being early adopters of innovative technology.”
The Tilt team also revealed key facts about the portal’s Australian users:
- In Australia, the average tilt collects $185 with the help of 4 contributors.
- Aussie students are also very tapped in on mobile — more than 70% of users created tilts through the iOS or Android app.
- Aussies are using Tilt everyday for everything. Some of our favorite tilts include: a 120 person pub crawl, 40 people hiring a yacht to sail around Sydney harbour, collecting $5k for a bucks night, and collecting $2k for a baby shower / friends chipping in for a family’s baby stroller.
- Since October, we’ve received over 1,000 applications from students who want to join our Australian Ambassador program.
