Our Story

If you were walking through airport security and noticed the TSA agents had blindfolds on, how would you feel?

Likely terrified.

Now, imagine a teacher walking out of a classroom immediately after passing out an exam.

Or a drug agency giving you a ‘do-it-yourself’ take-home drug test.

Or a poker player turning their back on their opponents while the cards are dealt.

Or an interrogator…okay, okay, I’m sure you get the point.

Intentionally ignoring someone’s behavioral cues, especially in a security setting, is ignorant and borderline reckless behavior.

Human body language and behavioral intelligence are absolutely imperative to truly understand someone’s intent.

So why do companies continue to ignore this simple fact and do nothing to fix it?

That problem led to the creation of ForMotiv, a Digital Behavioral Intelligence platform that helps companies understand their users like never before.

Founded in Philadelphia in 2017, ForMotiv is working with leading Financial Service companies to help them better understand their users, measure behavior, and predict intent.  We currently have offices in Philadelphia and Ho Chi Minh City and are continuing to expand our global client base.

Backed by successful East Coast Angel Investors who have extensive experience as technology entrepreneurs and investors, ForMotiv is leading the way into the new frontier of Digital Behavioral Intelligence.
