We started Bump to solve a major problem with mobile phones: as powerful as they have become, they are still pretty useless for interacting in the real world, with real people, places, and things. We're changing that.
Bump was born as a simple iPhone app for swapping contact information created by our three founders, but as our user base grew, so did our vision. We now have more than 75 million downloads, and a vision of changing the way people use their mobile devices. Our team includes some of the smartest and most talented developers and designers in Silicon Valley, and we all share a common goal: to build something people want and have fun doing it.
Bump was part of Y Combinator's summer 2009 batch, and our growth has been fueled by some of the Valley's top investors and VCs, like Ron Conway, Ram Shriram, Sequoia Capital, and Andreessen Horowitz. We're based in downtown Mountain View, the epicenter of Silicon Valley, mere steps from Caltrain to San Francisco.
