Tink was founded in Stockholm 2012 by Daniel Kjellén (CEO) & Fredrik Hedberg (CTO) with the mission of bringing people financial happiness. After five years, 1,834 deploys, ground-breaking product launches and 500,000 Tink app users later, we are as passionate as ever to improve people’s financial lives. We’re building a world where money works and our goal is to help people understand their finances, empower them to make smarter choices and ultimately bring financial happiness.
Launching the Tink App
Our direct-to-consumer app, was launched in October 2013 and was an immediate success. Currently live in Sweden, the app lets you manage your money across any account in any bank. This means you can transfer money, pay your bills, save towards your goals, borrow when you need to, and open new accounts. In addition, the Tink app lets you cherry-pick the best financial services out there, in a single app. We’ll even automatically find you a better deal on your mortgage, and seamlessly refinance it without you leaving the app.
Our First Bank Partnerships
In 2016, we partnered with Dutch ABN AMRO and Swedish SEB. SEB integrated our technology into their mobile banking app, now the most popular channel for private customers in Sweden, with more than 50 million visits every quarter. Together with ABN AMRO, we developed and launched the Grip app, built entirely on top of our platform and based on a customised white-label version of the Tink app’s own frontend design.

European Expansion of Tink Technology
In 2017 we went one step further in our journey. We are now establishing partnerships with banks and financial institutions across Europe to give their customers access to our technology and help create a world where managing money is effortless and rewarding. Every piece of the Tink platform that fuels our own consumer application is available for licensing. Although we're a pure technology provider on paper, we like to think of our customers as partners. Aside from our technology, we also offer all our product expertise, design learnings, user insights and know-how developed throughout the years.
