At Hardbacon, we are on a mission to help Canadians make better financial decisions and in turn bring home the bacon to lead wealthier and more financially secure lives. We provide the tools, information, and insight everyone needs to navigate their finances with confidence and ease.
We believe in helping everyone gain access to the right financial information at the right time.
By bringing together the tools people need to plan, budget and save, in one smart application, we are giving everyone the power to take control of their personal finances today for a more secure, more free and wealthier tomorrow.
Hardbacon is a financial technology company with an application at the heart of its mission. Hardbacon connects to your bank accounts and credit cards, allowing you to gain a complete picture of your finances.
It works as a planning app where you can add financial goals and turn your ambitions into realities; as a budgeting app that allows you to track how and where you spend your money and finally as a savings app with special comparison tools for financial products.
Our comparison tools help people save on recurring services, from credit cards to insurance policies, including bank accounts and robo-advisors. As users sync their accounts with Hardbacon for budgeting, we can easily help identify the best and most affordable products.
Hardbacon was co-founded in 2017 by current CEO Julien Brault as an app for retail investors and transformed into a budgeting app for all Canadians to take control of their personal finances.
In 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hardbacon worked with passion to help Canadians face the economic downturn by becoming a free app and releasing financial products comparison tools.
And so, the company developed an application that combines planning, budgeting and financial products comparison tools.
More than 200,000 monthly active users later, Hardbacon is proudly helping Canadians on the road to financial independence.
Today, Hardbacon is constantly improving its web and mobile app offering and is working on new tools to further help Canadians, including an AI based stocks rating system, the addition of credit scores, as well as the introduction of a web version of the Hardbacon app.
Our growing team continues to be dedicated to our mission and aim to provide professional and trustworthy information with passion. As we continue to grow our company, our objective will remain the same: to help Canadians make better financial decisions and in turn bring home the bacon.
The Hardbacon vision is rooted in a future where our financial system is democratized so that anyone, regardless of their level of wealth, can take full advantage of existing financial tools to make their dreams come true.
Through our experience in fintech and dedication to financial literacy, we are proud to provide trusted tools to our clients, while implementing new standards for the entire industry to uphold.
As a team, we value transparent relationships meaning a commitment to honesty, trust, and making information accessible to all. As a company, we take this value one step further by aiming to maintain relationships of transparency not only within our team, but also with our users. We’re dedicated to being open about what we do and how we do it, and truly believe it is the best and only way of doing business.
As an employer with the goal to help Canadians make better financial decisions, we not only provide tools, but educational resources to have a lasting impact on your financial independence. We take responsibility in guiding our users towards a more autonomous future where they can have complete control over their finances. Our business model is based on users’ needs being met at every level and that includes providing independence for financial success.
Freedom of expression
We see the value of freedom of expression and, at Hardbacon, it acts as a foundation. Just as we value your access to the best financial information, we’re dedicated to cultivating a safe place where everyone is encouraged to share opinions and information without fear of censorship.
