Bond was launched by the former COO of Twilio, the cloud platform, Roy Ng, and delivers software that allows firms of all kinds to offer financial solutions such as debit cards and credit cards. The startup has also worked to make sure that its software can be integrated with a network of banks that have the capacity of handling the regulatory obligations and compliances on behalf of its clients.
