Blueboard is the employee rewards and recognition platform for the modern workplace.

Blueboard enables companies to reward top employees with memorable, personal and shareable experiences.

Blueboard was founded in 2013 by Kevin Yip and Taylor Smith. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.


Blueboard’s platform helps companies of any size create personalized employee recognition and incentive programs that celebrate and elevate their best talent. From skydiving to virtual cooking classes to family days at the zoo, Blueboard’s intuitive platform makes it easy for companies and their managers to reward top-performing employees with exceptional experiences.


Blueboard offers more than 4,000 personalized experiences in over 70 countries. Blueboard’s unique model has attracted a diverse set of companies including Abbott’s diabetes care business, Pinterest, Shake Shack, and Ubisoft, enabling them to deliver life-changing experiences from chasing the Northern Lights (which led to an employee naming their daughter Aurora), to marriage proposals during Napa wine country getaways.


Blueboard is backed by Origin Ventures, Greycroft, Bullpen Capital, Plug and Play, Gaingels, 500 Startups, Renren, Martin Babinec, founder of TriNet and others. The company raised $9.3M in Series A round on Sep 24, 2020. This brings Blueboard's total funding to $15.9M to date.
