ATLANTA – September 20, 2022 – Flyp Financial, Inc. announced today that it has been chosen out of a record-breaking 450-plus applicants as one of the top technology companies in the Southeast to be showcased at Venture Atlanta FORWARD 2022 on October 19-20. For 15 years, the annual conference has been selecting the most promising tech companies and bringing in the top investment firms from across the nation to hear them pitch. Venture Atlanta has helped launch more than 700 companies and raise $6.5 billion in funding to date, spinning out $17 billion in successful exits.
“Venture Atlanta is a huge achievement for us, and we are excited and honored to be selected as one of the top tech firms in the Southeast,” said BJ McAndrews, CEO of Flyp Financial. “We are looking forward to participating in the conference, collaborating with other founders, and sharing the Flyp story with the largest gathering of venture capitalists in the Southeast.”
Flyp launched earlier this year with a mission to leverage gamification as a delivery mechanism to improve financial literacy, incent good financial behavior, and improve user experience. They offer a mobile digital wallet banking solution with no hidden fees, a Visa® branded debit card, signup bonuses, early access to wages, no credit check, automatic direct deposit of paychecks and a unique gamified rewards program that provides rewards for every swipe of the card (up to 110% cash back on each purchase), which is rare for a debit card offering.
