Leading innovation across multiple verticals scaling businesses in the tech space




As Featured In:

Over the last decade, KiwiTech has led innovation across multiple verticals scaling businesses in the tech space. We intimately understand the challenges faced by new founders, aspiring unicorns and established leaders and work closely with them to realize their passion and purpose.

Through our extensive relationships and expertise, we bring a perspective that helps strategically connect technology creators with technology consumers. We have created an ecosystem of proactive investors and advisors who are passionate about building technology, supporting entrepreneurship, and helping companies realize their maximum potential.

KiwiTech was founded in 2009 by Rakesh Gupta, Neal Gupta, Anita Gupta, and Gurvinder Batra. Prior to KiwiTech, our founding team started a publishing services company, Aptara, in the late 1980s, scaled it to 5000+ employees and exited in 2012 for $144 million.

KiwiTech began as a mobile and web development firm focusing on enterprises. Leveraging our deep experience and entrepreneurial history, we launched a unique startup program a few years later to help early to late-stage startups build viable products, drive traction, raise capital and scale their businesses.

Our portfolio startups get access to our 500-strong tech team across multiple offices in the U.S. and India. They also gain exposure through our Demo Days, which are held 2-3 times every month across the country and are attended by our strong network of HNWIs, venture capital firms as well as family offices.

Over 200 startups across a dozen industries have taken advantage of our startup program so far.

For the last year, KiwiTech and Lifekee have worked together to develop a state-of-the-art contact and identity management solution. The Lifekee platform now includes three beautiful native apps on Android, iOS, and Web for enterprise-level clients and personal uses. Lifekee ID is being leveraged by USAC, Miami Dade College, Aseguradora General, and Rojos del Municipal among other organizations as well as large scale events/conferences such as Volcano Summit in Guatemala. We have now launched our latest feature, a QR based digital business cards and ‘Smart Connect,’ where you can become discoverable to nearby Lifekee users during a meeting or an event. Thanks to the KiwiTech team for being a great partner in this adventure!” – Daniel Ghelman, Co-Founder, Lifekee
