About Bumped

Our mission is to help build meaningful relationships between brands and their customers.

We’ve built the platform that rewards customers with fractional shares of stock, empowering consumers to become shareholders. By creating access to ownership, brands, financial institutions, and businesses can cultivate stronger, more loyal relationships.

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. companies deserve a reward that builds over time. Now, he and his team lead the first-of-its-kind loyalty platform, empowering brands and banks to reward their customers in shares of stock.

Meet Our Founder

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).
