Founded in 2010 and based in Miami, Kairos is a venture-backed organization servicing a diverse global customer base.

Kairos in 2012 it received $500,000 in seed funding, bringing its total funding to $1.7 million. That same year they launched their first product, Kairos TimeClock, which uses facial recognition to time employees at work.

Kairos always had the mission of being the main supplier of recognition for companies and thus be able to improve the experience between human beings and machines.

Historically this type of technology has always been complex and expensive, even beyond the reach of the majority. But the Miami-based startup wants to eliminate these challenges and make it easy.
