Small business owners are the backbone of the American economy. But more than that, they embody the values that are core to our national identity, like freedom, independence, grit, and self-determination. These are the values we admire and see every day in our customers.
In this series, we’ll be shining a spotlight on some of the small business owners who embody the NorthOne Spirit. These are real, hard-working Americans that use NorthOne to manage their business banking, so they can focus on the stuff that matters.

Benjie needed a bank that moved at the same pace as his small business. That’s what initially drew the designer to NorthOne. But beyond that he’s found comfort in having a bank that truly supports him.
“You make managing and moving and controlling my money super easy. Getting really personal too, you just treat me better than I’ve ever been treated by a brick and mortar bank. Even though I am a small business, we’re not moving millions of dollars in revenue a year, I feel like I’m treated as just legitimate as a large business.”
Benjie and Singularity Design Co speak to the values that NorthOne has as a company. We’re honoured to have customers who play such vital roles in their community and grateful we can support them in their efforts.
