Our Vision

Empowering you to bring meaning and wisdom to the data that surrounds every customer, inspiring them to live their best lives

About Flybits

Our vision fuels us to expand the relationship between individuals and their financial institutions. We achieve this by embedding a multi-dimensional contextual lens across every mobile customer experience, so banks can deliver the right message to every customer, in the moments that matter.

Trust and innovation

Until now, business with banks has been transactional, a place to go pay bills, take out a mortgage, or invest. The new currency of banks will be data, and how they use digital channels to empower customers.

How we got here

Flybits was born in a university research lab in 2008, by Professor Hossein Rahnama. He recognized that humans make decisions using different inputs and sources of information. It was a time when people were being bombarded with information while devices were getting smaller. An opportunity existed, to apply context to data and deliver relevant recommendations. It’s only with context that our physical and digital worlds can seamlessly connect, to bring experiences that are more impactful than we’ve ever seen before.

Social impact

We believe in inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs by building technology to improve the health and vitality of the communities we serve. Over the last few years we’ve partnered with NEXT Canada, a national non-profit accelerator headquartered in Toronto on a mission to help the Canadian ecosystem grow and thrive.

Our team

Flybits is one of the world’s top fintech companies. We’ve raised over $55 million to date from top investors that include TD Bank, Mastercard, and Point 72 Ventures. Our executive team, Board of Directors, and Advisory Board represent industry experts and globally recognized thought leaders in banking and innovation.
