We’re into money and power.
(Particularly stopping illegal uses of it)

We’re on a mission to fight financial crime using better
communications and technology.

About Us

We've got a big problem.

Most of the world's crime involves money. Drug cartels, organized crime, weapons sales, political corruption, and human trafficking all rely on money movement through our financial system. There's no better way to fight these criminals than to follow the money and choke off the profits.

Our mission at Hummingbird is straightforward: Fight financial crime. We do this by helping financial institutions investigate suspicious behavior and communicate it to law enforcement. We're a mission-driven company, and we're rethinking the practice of anti-money laundering.

About Us

Hummingbird blends regulatory expertise with modern product design and technology. We've worked as regulators with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and examiners with the Treasury. We've built and shipped products with great organizations like Apple, Square, and IDEO.org. We like to move fast, iterate, and improve.
