Drinkboard: Drinkboard turns consumers into viral brand ambassadors for each merchant and brand while driving new revenue not seen before.
Gift for a cause: Drinkboard is working with Share our Strength and team No Kid Hungry to support the fight against childhood hunger. Anyone who texts "No Kid Hungry" to 31996 will join in the fight against childhood hunger while supporting local brick and mortar businesses. Drinkboard is donating 100% of their proceeds for any gift bought in the month of October (also known at Drinkboard HQ as Giftober) at any of their celebrated locations.
"As a team, our vision was to develop technology that supports community," says David Leibner, CEO of Giftboard Inc. the parent company of Drinkboard. "We know that the human race has never been so hyper aware of celebratory events ever before. We also know that all you can gift a friend, loved one or co-worker in real time from afar, is flowers and chocolate. Our market research shows that the consumer appreciates the ability to buy a friend a carefully curated gift from an amazing bar or restaurant for signature cocktails and other menu items".
Real life use cases so far for Drinkboard are numerous e.g. many realtors are realizing that buying a client dinner at a restaurant through Drinkboard is a better gift than the standard gift basket.
Many hotels and casinos are realizing that a mobile gifting platform is a much better solution than faxing Credit Card authorization forms.
Many restaurants are realizing that standard gift cards are antiquated and don't stand up to a digital voucher that can be bought and redeemed on a global level in real time.
