The Gold Coast Innovation Hub is pleased to announce a partnership with Twilio, a world leading Cloud communications platform for building SMS, Voice & Messaging applications at global scale.
Starter, Growth and Advisory members of the Gold Coast Innovation Hub as well as companies that are currently funded or raising funds through our investment partner, 42 Ventures, can access US$500 in credits for Twilio (SMS, Voice, WhatsApp) and US$1,000 in credits for Twilio SendGrid (Email API + Marketing Campaigns).
So what is Twilio?
Simply put, Twilio is a developer platform for communications. Software teams use Twilio APIs to add capabilities like voice, video, and messaging to their applications. This enables businesses to provide the right communications experience for their customers. Behind Twilio APIs is a Super Network, a software layer that connects and optimizes communications networks around the world. This is what allows your users to reliably call and message anyone anywhere. With Twilio, you can reach customers in the ways they prefer, and engage with them effectively using context related to that interaction.
Twilio SendGrid is a cloud-based platform that solves the challenge of email delivery. SendGrid provides and manages an email server on your company’s behalf, so your communications with customers are reliably sent and delivered as needed.
Twilio SendGrid includes:
Email API: Send transactional email using dedicated IPs, white-labeling, sub-user management, and advanced API features.
Marketing Campaigns: Send newsletters with powerful list segmentation, A/B testing, engagement features, and marketing email performance.
Members will receive credits, education and support, plus access to the Twilio Startups team.
