Human history is filled with examples of groups coming together and pooling their resources to transform a neighborhood, a community, a city, or even a nation. At Tilt, we’re excited to be building software that makes pooling resources with a group just a little bit easier.
Since 2012, over 300,000 groups have used Tilt to turn their ideas, large and small, into reality. Our users have done a lot to make us proud, from thousands of tailgates, fantasy football leagues, and party buses all the way to sending the Jamaican Bobsled Team to the Sochi Olympics, fundraising the construction of an entire elementary school in India, bringing the Foo Fighters to perform in a small town, and everything in between.
Aside from being captured in countless Instagrams and Snapchats, some of these stories have even landed in Rolling Stone, The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, Saturday Night Live, and more. But instead of reading about these experiences, we’d like to help you create some of your own.
So assemble your crew – we can’t wait to see what you’ll tilt next.
