On a mission to empower teams

We started as friends with two very different backgrounds and growing up in different parts of the world.  We met while working in the fintech industry and immediately thought we’ve known each other all of our lives.  


Both of us were similar in our love of technology but different how we spent our corporate careers….one in product development, design and operations and the other in the cultures of people and companies.  We are both very social people and we found a need for organizing our friends around finances… whether it was for a group trip, a reunion or our kid’s school and sports activities…. we found that there was a gap in technology that helped groups financially interact.  We didn’t want money to be a sore topic between friends, families and colleagues; we wanted people to interact like they socially do with happiness and trust.  


We thought if we could bring trust into how people interact financially, then we’ve solved “the people” part of the equation. 

Our Vision

is about connecting people to build trusted and meaningful relationships.

Our Culture

We believe that relationships are the key to life so we have developed our values centered around PEOPLE and TRUST.

Our Mission

is to free groups to reimagine their financial and social life in one app.

Our Values

Being honest, open, creative and a team player are the values that we seek from our team.
