Last year, the company doubled its staff and opened a new office in San Francisco.
In an interview, Costello said that FrankieOne was born with Chipper from Neobank Venture named Frankie. Costello and Chipper wanted Frankie to differentiate from other companies in the industry with the best onboarding experience using the best identity and fraud prevention tools available. However, when they started working, they found that the process was unnecessarily complicated, requiring multiple integrations. The two, who saw that other fintech companies were experiencing the same problems, founded FrankieOne as a result of seeing such a need.
