Bento for Business is the first comprehensive expense management platform built just for Small and Medium Businesses. Bento issues smart employee corporate cards that can be controlled remotely through proprietary software. It is extremely simple to use and offers powerful features like customizable card spend controls, 2-way alerts, and receipt capture that were thus far only available to large enterprises. For distributed workforces and most small businesses with employees on the road, Bento is a must have efficiency and spend control tool. Bento was co-founded in 2014 by Farhan Ahmad, former Managing Director at Barclays, and Global Head of Emerging Payments at Discover Card, and Sean Anderson, former Senior Director of Emerging Products at Blackhawk Network. Bento is based in San Francisco and is backed by leading venture capitalists and industry veterans.
