Started in 2015, [color=#339900]KindLink[/color] is a Tech4Good company dedicated to creating a transparent charity sector and helping companies manage and promote all their corporate social responsibility activities. It is platform where the donor can connect with the entire value chain of their donation and observe the payment flow, the work of the charity they donated to and connect with the final beneficiary.
[color=#339900]Iskren Kulev[/color], CEO and Founder of KindLink, started his career with a sales/technical role in online payment at Paysafe Group and continued through to work with iZettle, one of the hottest financial tech start-ups that was recently sold to PayPal. Armed with that experience and an MBA, he moved forward to start KindLink.
In this episode, we talk to Iskren about transparency in giving, passion for the problems, and the beauty of rule breaking.

We support over 700 non-profit organizations globally; from Africa to US, Canada and UK. Our business clients work internationally with charities in Nepal, South Africa and Uganda. I believe this is one of our biggest accomplishments…being able to support more than 10,000 beneficiaries, changes the way we see our work. I can say that, for me, this is the most important thing about our jobs.
