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 platform, powering ownership while empowering brands and banks to reward their customers in fractional shares of stock.

Meet our founder

David Nelsen founded Bumped on the belief that everyone deserves to be an owner. He maintains that vision as Bumped grows, leading an org that leverages ownership to build relationships between brands and their customers. David has deep roots in the rewards and incentives space, as prior to Bumped, he 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).
