About us

We empower businesses
to provide better financial services About us
to consumers


Flinks is a data company that empowers businesses to connect their users with financial services they want.

Trusted by hundreds of world-class companies, Flinks enables businesses to connect users’ bank accounts, enrich their data, and utilize it to deliver better products.

An award-winning company, Flinks has become the leader in financial data connectivity in just three years.


Flinks was created the moment we decided to stop wondering what the future of finance would look like — and decided to start building it.

At Flinks, we work to create the future with passion, ambition and at times a bit of obsession. We are not a family, we are an assertive team of impact-driven pioneers, one that believes that drive and traction can change the world. We see ourselves as builders in an industry in dire need of change, enablers making deliberate choices together, and pathfinders taking the risks we deem necessary.

In the end it comes down to 4 core values: Audacity, Autonomy, Learning, Profitability.
