We are Yesty

Yesty, based in Haarlem, is a 2018 startup, founded by serial entrepreneur Nick Stals. We solve the problem of giving gift cards. We believe we are in an industry that requires modernization and our team are therefore disrupting this paper-based industry by making gift cards more personalized, fun, easier to use and more environmentally friendly. At Yesty, we care to give and together, we are striving to give "Gift Card 2.0" to the world.

The explanation of Gift Card 2.0

With the Yesty app (iOS / Android), anyone can give a gift card through WhatsApp. You can add a video, a photo and personal message to make it more fun and more personal. Companies also use the Yesty tool to send gift cards via email to employees and customers. Of course with corporate identity and other personalizations. As a recipient, you can store a received gift card in the app, receive notifications and redeem the gift card with their phones at retailers and swap your gift card for something else. You can also then use the app to gift to others.  We have a 4.5 star rating in the app store and our user base continues to grow, we work with some major national retailers and more and more businesses are using Yestyto gift their employees too.

Our Team

It all started with 2 people in 2018 and within 12 months we increased the team to 5 full time employees, an off-site development team and a temporary in-house recruitment team. We're an autonomous (self-funded) startup that is growing, but we aren't the typical inexperienced startup that you'd imagine. Nick, our CEO, founded HotelSpecials.nl, a major hotel booking website in the Netherlands, 15 years ago and GiftForYou, market leader in the Dutch experience gift card market, that he sold in 2017. His ambition is to make Yesty even more successful!

Come and say hello!

"For me, I chose Yesty because of Nick and his solid plan and vision as well as the already beautiful product. We know that this market needs to be digitalized and the complexity of working on a corporate solution as well as a B2C solution makes things challenging and super dynamic for me everyday. It's also nice to be building a company together"
