Kindergifts

Kindergifts

Kindergifts is an online invitation platform that enables children to get a dream gift from their friends and give back to charity when they celebrate.

Over £1bn a year is spent on children’s birthday party gifts. At a typical party, a child receives 20 little gifts worth £10-£20 each. Parents are concerned about the amount of presents, lack of appreciation, clutter and waste. It’s also costly and inconvenient for the guests to buy so many last-minute presents. Most concerning is the social disconnect: 4m children in the UK live in poverty and never get the things they actually need.

Our platform allows parents to club together for a group gift and a charity chosen by the birthday child. Through the invitation process, the parent and child choose a dream present, a local charity and a % of the party proceeds they wish to donate. Instead of buying individual presents, guests have the option to contribute towards the child’s birthday wish. So, the child gets the perfect gift they want and learns to share with those in need.

We help parents transform gift waste into meaningful presents whilst supporting local charities and teaching kids good values. We’d love to partner with UK retailers to improve gifting economics from low-end to high-end gift purchases and help society along the way. Our gifts selection process is also an opportunity to build brand awareness and social responsibility credentials with a much younger audience than otherwise.

Aura Vision Labs

Aura Vision Labs

Experiential shopping and new shopping habits are on the rise, but few retailers can measure the quality of their in-store shopping experience, beyond rudimentary footfall counts. Aura Vision’s cutting-edge AI captures every step of the shopping journey, and we also estimate the age and gender of every shopper in your stores.

We enable A/B testing for the offline world and allow retailers to do things many new things:

  • Improve capture rate by testing more effective window displays and media
  • Improve sales by knowing which products are getting high or low engagement from which demographics.
  • Know which routes customers take around the store and whether high-margin products can be reallocated for target demographics
