Milo™ is the brainchild of Australian-born founder Peter Celinski, who on a family ski trip was unable to keep up with his children on the slopes. Shouting and using traditional walkie-talkies, Celinski found nothing worked well enough to stay connected on the mountain. This experience, combined with Celinski’s expertise in audio engineering, was what led the Aussie dad to establish Milo™ in the U.S. in 2017.

Backed by a 2017 Kickstarter campaign, Milo™ generated USD$2.5 million in pre-orders within its first 37 days, claiming 5th position on the most funded campaigns at that time. Fast-forward to 2022 and Milo™ won the Time Magazine Best Invention Award and the coveted Red Dot Design award. The company’s total funding to date has now reached USD$18 million. Determined to continue this success and grow its strong community of 65,000 adventurers, Milo™ is innovating the way we communicate.
