About Zapkad

We want to be a different kind of company.
Our vision is to eliminate paper business cards and save 6 million trees a year, by offering a compelling alternative that will change the way we network. Many companies have tried to disrupt the industry with little success. It’s an uphill battle and it’ll take an unconventional company to shake up a centuries-old industry.

Our Culture

Fun - We want to create an environment that is fun for people to work in. We believe happy employees are healthier, more productive and more creative.

Innovation – Continuously think of new ideas, whether it is a product, service or process improvement. Start every idea with positivity and if it doesn’t work, move on to the next idea.

Respect – For customers and for colleagues, not judging by wealth or ranks. Every person deserves the same level of respect. Let’s not treat someone differently just because the person has a higher rank or is less well-off.

Sustainability – Our vision is to save the environment by eliminating paper business cards and it also applies to the way we work. We offer great flexibility for employees to work from home, reducing commuting and lowering carbon footprint.

Teamwork – Effective collaboration is critical to our success when we work from home. Employees are trained to use collaboration tools to ensure we communicate, innovate, learn and operate as one fun team.

Wonderful!!! Great app!! Most importantly, it's user friendly, especially during this pandemic period, we don't need to exchange name cards physically! Save the trees, save the Earth!!


Super user friendly! App is smart enough to detect the edges of business cards and automatically crops out any unwanted backgrounds. I wouldn’t need to exchange all the business cards now and after that to be kept in the drawer!

Very comprehensive. Combines all the necessary useful elements into one app. Good potential.

Useful app if you love to read news around the world and also manage your business contacts.
