Designed using over 40 years of alternative data expertise
ForwardAI was founded by three serial entrepreneurs with decades of experience working with accounting data and small businesses from startup to sales. Our leadership team has made it their life’s mission to help small businesses stay financially healthy.
We understand business data and what you need from it
Before ForwardAI, our founders built from scratch a popular online accounting software used by over 40,000 small businesses worldwide and founded and sold one of Canada’s largest accounting IT companies. During the pandemic, it became clear how complicated the small business loan application process was. For some SMBs, it took months to secure financing. These delays were confusing – and with our founder’s knowledge of accounting data, it seemed strange that lenders weren’t using technology to connect directly to the information they needed. Determined to make a difference, ForwardAI was created to bridge the technology gap for financial institutions, lenders, and other fintechs.
Security is at our core
ForwardAI is officially Service Organizational Control (SOC) 2 type II compliant for our partners’ peace of mind, but our security-first principles go beyond compliance standards. From rigorous employee training to strict protocols, we are constantly testing and improving our security measures to achieve best-in-class security, so you can work confidently with us.
