• Hi



We developed Kickback to be a better way to organize events. Our founding team are all musicians and event organizers in San Francisco, and the idea was sparked one day while discussing the unpredictability of hosting an event, whether a concert, a workshop, or a private party.

Kickback was designed to solve that problem, by providing a platform that lets you prove demand for something before investing in it. It's crowdfunding for events– if there's enough support for an event, it tips and the you get the crowd and the funds you need to put on a successful event.


Our mission is to encourage and diversify the events happening today through social engagement. We want to give any artist, venue, organization or individual a tool that will allow them to create awesomeness.
