Giftpack, Inc..[1][2], a Silicon Valley based cross-border AI (artificial intelligence) startup, founded by Archer Chiang in June, 2016. Giftpack, Inc. was officially launched in June, 2017. It aims to overturn the traditional way of gifting service. The gifting platform combines design, service, big data, artificial intelligence, and the concept sharing economy as to subvert the mode of cross-border business and logistics. Giftpack, Inc. devotes itself into AI technology by using big data to target corporate employees and clients for precise gifting strategies, in order to meet the high demands of gifting from international businesses[3]


Archer Chiang, one of the founders of Giftpack, Inc., recognized that in every long-distance relationship, differences in time and distance are two major problems most of the people need to deal with. Therefore, Giftpack, Inc. has its mission, providing cross-borders, cross-cities, cross-areas real-time gifting service as a solution for people in long-distance relationships. In May, 2016, before its foundation, Archer Chiang conducted the first product testing in San Francisco, USA. He used a cup of coffee as a gesture of caring as a starting point, successfully sold the idea and profited. In June, 2017, after one year of foundation, the product was officially launched. Giftpack, Inc. became the first cross-borders real-time gifting company in the world.


Company Culture

Since the foundation of Giftpack, Inc., it has a culture of remote-working. One of the reasons was because of the educational background of Archer Chiang.
