PerkUp is a fast-growing, early-stage FinTech startup that’s disrupting corporate gifting. PerkUp is a software platform that lets HR, sales, and marketing teams send high-quality gifts globally to their employees and customers.

In 2021, US businesses spent $90 billion on gift cards for their employees and customers—PerkUp is a fantastic alternative to gift cards because it allows companies to keep the unspent funds, generate consolidated tax reports, and provides millions of reward and gift options.

Since launching in January 2021, the MVP has gained impressive traction and PerkUp now requires an Account Executive to bring the distribution of our offering to the next level. To learn more, visit
