Backupify was founded in November 2008 in Louisville Kentucky. As noted in Business First: Louisville native Robert May, a former electrical engineer for a Florida defense contractor, founded the company in Louisville. He said Backupify used its most recent round of funding to hire a vice president of product development and a senior programmer in Louisville.
