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 2013, 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.
