A Community-as-a-Service (CaaS) Platform  For Scale-Up Tech Companies
Powderkeg is the leading community platform for the most promising scale-up companies outside of SF and NY. The value SF founders get from physical density is what we give everyone else digitally (+ events once in a while).

Big Win

  • We have 40+ paying customers for the new platform and an additional 20+ enterprise customers like Salesforce, Genesys, and Rise of the Rest. 
  • We continue to successfully build and validate our regional scaling process across places like Kansas City, Raleigh-Durham, Denver-Boulder, and Cincinnati. 
  • A large existing corporate customer just doubled their spend, of which the new piece represents our first sale of data product (rather than membership or corporate partner product). They value our unique data, and we think there’s a lot of revenue growth potential in that path.
  • We just hired an exceptional Head of Content (early days at Groupon and managed digital at Angie's List) as well as a new Events Director with 8+ years hosting 20+ events per month for software scale-up OneCause (formerly BidPal).
  • We’ve added two great advisors, both of whom came up outside the Valley and built successful tech companies, who now do ecosystem building work. John Ramey (White House innovation advisor / DIUx, Nomadic Mentors, iSocket) and Frank Gruber (Tech.co).
