Kantree is a product of Digicoop, a privately held software company based in Paris, France. It was founded in 2014 by Maxime Bouroumeau-Fuseau and Jeremy Moresmau. They started the company based on shared values of openness, fairness, and positive social contributions, as well as a passion for modern technology. Although their goal is simple, which is to make good products that will impact companies positively, they chose to be a remote-first worker cooperative company rather than take venture capital funding.
