About

Bruno and Stone met in China in 2018 and developed the idea of ​​replicating mature technology models that were successful in China and the US to try to solve real problems in Brazil, taking advantage of Chinese technology and know-how.

They have developed banking connections with the biggest institutions in Brazil to facilitate the transfer of financial data from a person in an institution to any company. The first product they created was an expense management application, which still exists, but the market

demand for these banking connections was so great at the end of 2019 that they chose to pivot to B2B by offering these connections to businesses and partners. Today, the company connects banks, brokerages and shared savings

applications, and has leading clients from various market segments. In addition to providing connections, the company also creates value for its customers by helping with data reading, risk analysis by applying advanced AI and machine learning techniques.
