ABOUT ALYCE

We are Alyce – an ambitious, fast-growing start-up with our HQ office in Boston, USA.

We create measurable human-to-human engagement and ROI-focused customer delight through a modern, AI-powered corporate gifting platform. It aggregates corporate gifting spend to maximize marketing measurability, sales productivity, and business results. And we make gift-giving simple, personal, and measurable. Alyce gift recipients have the power of choice to accept their gift, exchange for another, or donate the value of their gift to charity. We help companies build real, human relationships with prospects, clients, partners, and employees through personalized gifts.

We believe in open and transparent communication within the team. We are building an environment that is open, respectful, and supportive. While we all have our own preferences, personalities, objectives, and goals, we are one team that is building something great together – the solution, that delivers real results to our customers. Our differences make us collectively better.
