About Us

Rightfoot believes that consumers have the right to permission their financial data in one click to access fair financial services, and that the process of permissioning should not require sharing bank username and passwords.

Rightfoot is building consumer-permissioned financial data, without requiring end customers to share their bank username and password. The power of this product is that it both decreases friction in the user experience, and increases financial access for consumers and small businesses.

Financial institutions leverage Rightfoot to increase conversion in the onboarding experience, seamlessly monitor customer accounts, screen for fraud, and more.

Rightfoot raised a $15M Series A to build the standard API connection for frictionless consumer-permissioned data, and is backed by top fintech VCs like Bain Capital Ventures and BoxGroup, as well as executives and founders of companies like Venmo, Block, Marqeta, Eventbrite, and more. Rightfoot was named a 2023 CB Insights’ Fintech 100, a 2023 Will Reed Top 100, and a 2021 Forbes Cloud 100 Rising Star.
