Who are we
As entrepreneurs constantly in search of new business opportunities and the love of launching new products to the market, we were becoming frustrated with how confusing it was to build an online brand and most importantly all the components needed weren’t in one place. So we built HypeID – an easy to use, one stop branding shop. Our ethos is on having great interactions that grow lasting partnerships with our clients and suppliers.
Our leadership team is a unique international collaboration between our founders, based in Sydney, Australia and the dynamic design duo behind the Okwaho Network, an innovative social media platform for Indigenous peoples around the globe, based on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in Ontario, Canada. As a team we are committed to helping diverse entrepreneurs and businesses maximize their brand potential and truly take their enterprises to the next level. Whether your business is in Australia, Canada or America we are here to help you build, grow and maximize your brand.
