Company Summary

Because of our greater personal reach, standard meaningful interactions such as treating someone to lunch are no longer scalable. Gifting is a viable solution to distinguish interactions and differentiate communications, however it’s not scalable in it’s current form. NOOM fixes that. Our platform facilitates product-based gifting of food and drink items. These items make gifting an attainable means of interacting across a large network.
