Located in Victoria, Canada, Kiind was founded in 2012 by Leif Baradoy and Peter Locke. While helping his brother move, Leif discovered a gift card he’d given his brother years ago that hadn’t been used. Kiind was created to fix the broken gift card industry. Backed by a team of experienced advisors and investors, Kiind has revolutionized the $120 billion North American gift card industry. The company recently launched an API that makes it possible to use Kiind within other tools and Service and has a patent pending on its proprietary technology.
