Our mission is to build meaningful, lasting relationships between customers and their favorite brands.
That means we’re building something great to turn everyone into a shareholder—or, as we say it—an owner. After all, it's not about us. It's about consumers and the brands they love, loving them back.
A Brief History
Bumped was founded in 2017 by David Nelsen—who after a successful career bringing the digital gift card to market, saw the opportunity for a fresh approach to loyalty and rewards. Nelsen designed Bumped on his beliefs that 1. everyone deserves to be an owner, and 2. brands deserve a reward that builds over time. Now, he and his team lead the first-of-its-kind loyalty platform, empowering brands to reward their customers in shares of stock.

David Nelsen, CEO
David Nelsen founded Bumped on the belief that everyone deserves to be an owner. He leads the first ever company to focus on building one-to-one relationships between brands and their customers. Prior to Bumped, David was CEO and co-founder of Giftango—a digital payments company that brought the digital gift card to market for many of the largest global brands. Giftango was sold December 2012 to InComm (now InComm Digital in Portland, OR).
