Timothy Bentley

Tim has experience in: investment banking (2 years), technology startups (3 companies), project management, group management, laboratory research, operations, and eating gelato.

Before starting Giftly, Tim was at Aardvark. There he was the first employee at the pioneering social search start-up, that built the first social search engine: a way to find people, not web pages, that have specific information. Aardvark sold to Google in February 2010 for $50M.

Before Aardvark, Tim founded 1-800-Know-Now, a mobile search company that had human operators help find information for users by either searching for the information themselves or putting them in touch with the right person.

Tim started his career at Cowen & Company, working in Equity Capital Markets, specializing in Convertible Debt.
