Fintech Infrastructure Company Cited as a Small Company Stand Out for Fostering an Exceptionally Innovative and Welcoming Environment

SAN FRANCISCO, August 4, 2022 Fast Company today announced its fourth annual Best Workplaces for Innovators list, honoring organizations and businesses that demonstrate a steadfast commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels. Bond Financial Technologies, Inc., the leading embedded finance platform, was selected as one of 11 companies globally in the small company category. These companies with fewer than 100 employees were selected because they foster exceptionally innovative environments. Though they may be small, their potential for impact and growth is just the opposite.

Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2022 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks winners from a variety of industries including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity, engineering, diversity, sustainability, B2B, and consumer products and services. Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers worked together to score nearly 1,500 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top companies. The 2022 awards feature workplaces from around the world.

“I am honored that Bond has been recognized by Fast Company as a standout small company for the culture of opportunity and innovation we’ve worked so hard to create,” said Roy Ng, CEO and co-founder of Bond. “Yan Wu and I founded Bond in 2019 with a mission to build a best-in-class embedded finance platform for innovators to build apps that enable financial access and inclusion. We enable our customers to build incredibly personalized apps that integrate innovative software experiences with financial services. People have very personal and intimate relationships with their money; the only way to build a platform that enables our customers to build this is to build a diverse team with different backgrounds and points of views.” 

“This year’s list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators recognizes organizations that have demonstrated a deep commitment to cultivating creativity across the board,” says Brendan Vaughan, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “In the face of powerful headwinds, these leaders and teams continue to spur innovation.”
