The Kudoboard Story

Aaron Rubens, co-founder of Kudoboard, previously worked as a high school math teacher. At the end of the school year, Aaron asked each student to write his or her name at the center of a piece of paper and pass it around to the other students in the class. Each student wrote a compliment - or kudo - to every other student in the class, and when a student got his paper back he had a full paper full of compliments (the first Kudoboards!). The students were initially skeptical of the idea, but their strongly positive reactions once they received their completed boards convinced Aaron of the power of group appreciation and planted the seeds for Kudoboard!
