The Giftly Story


"I really wanted to treat my Mom to dinner at Sarducci's, her favorite restaurant in Vermont, and a movie at Savoy, the local indie theater. I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her all the way across the country. Nothing existed that felt personal but made this easy, so Giftly was born."

- Tim Bentley, Founder & CEO


Meet the Team:


Tim Bentley

Founder & CEO

Tim
Before founding Giftly, Tim was the first employee at Aardvark, managing operations and the early product prototype for the groundbreaking social search engine acquired by Google in 2010. Aardvark had acquired Tim because of his first startup, 1(800) KNOW-NOW, a real time search company based in New York, which Tim founded in 2006.
Before entering the world of technology, Tim was an investment banker at Cowen and Company. He has a BS in Engineering and Physics from Brown University.

Balen Gore

VP Engineering

Balen
Balen comes to Giftly after six years at Google, where he honed his geek street cred as well as his love for all things gadget and G-related. He is a little bit more than excited to unleash his coding prowess to help Giftly revolutionize the gifting experience.
Pre-Giftly, Balen grew up in Eugene, Oregon and thus has an immense and consuming love for the Oregon Ducks. In his spare time, he enjoys exploring San Francisco, playing soccer, and expanding his tie-dye t-shirt collection.
