Binti, Inc is a Series A mission-driven start-up in Oakland, CA. We believe every child deserves the care and support of a loving family. Binti builds software with the goal of helping every child have a family. 400,000 children are currently in foster care in the US and millions are in orphanages around the world. 30% of the US’s homeless population and 25% of prison inmates are former foster youth. It’s clear that children who don’t have families don’t have a fair chance at life and Binti wants to change this. Binti is a mission-driven, technology company based in Oakland, California.
Binti’s mission is to increase equality of opportunity and help every person have a fair chance at life. With over 400,000 youth in foster care in the United States, we are reinventing child welfare through technology to help every child find a safe, loving, and stable family.
We partner with state, county and private foster care agencies around the country, helping them recruit and approve foster parents more quickly and empowering social workers by eliminating administrative paperwork. Our software also helps match families with children and helps track services to biological families to get on their feet and reunify with their children. Binti currently works with over 140 foster care agencies across 22 states. Rhode Island, New Mexico, Hawaii and Washington have signed on to make our software their statewide solution.
Our goal is to be the end-to-end child welfare system solution. We have built three of the seven modules so far and are already seeing an impact; Approvals, Placements & Case Management and customers have seen an 80% increase in foster parent approval, 16% reduction in approval time and 20-40% social worker time saved.
Binti is a mission-driven software company based in Oakland, CA. We have raised our Series A led by Founders Fund and other investors include First Round Capital and Kapor Capital.
