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.
