About Binti

Binti’s mission is to help every child have a safe, loving and stable family through our work building software for foster care and adoption agencies.

We currently work with adoption agencies in 30 states to help them accept online applications from potential adoptive parents. We have recently expanded to also work with foster care agencies, helping them recruit and approve foster parents more quickly and allowing their social workers to spend more time on social work and less time on paperwork. Customers include the Counties of Alameda, Los Angeles, Orange, and San Francisco, among others. There is so much software can do to improve outcomes for children in foster care and we view our current offerings as only the beginning.

Binti is a for-profit, mission-driven software company based in San Francisco, CA. Investors include First Round Capital, Kapor Capital, and Lowercase Capital.
