How they describe themselves: Bumped is a tech company building one-to-one relationships between customers and brands. We partner with brands to give their customers free stock for their purchases, turning loyal shoppers and spenders into shareholders. We create access to the stock market while aligning brands with the people who matter most: their customer. We believe that ownership is the most powerful reward currency. Our hope is that customers will believe in their power to impact the brands they care about, and brands will prioritize values – not just prices – as a way to connect with their customer. Bumped is available in the U.S. and proudly built in Portland, Oregon. Say hello at bumped.com.
How they describe their product/innovation: Customers download the Bumped app, link their pre-existing cards, and select the partner brands they’re loyal to. Then, they live their lives! After setting up Bumped, they’ll get a percentage of their purchases back in company stock whenever they spend with their chosen brands. By creating that simple access point to ownership, Bumped helps to educate customers and remove complexity from the traditional stock market. With no fees, Bumped is a way for the 50% of Americans who don’t invest in the stock market to participate, get involved, and learn what it means to own the brands they love.
