What is the problem you found?
Lots of people are just thrown into the world not knowing how to handle money properly since it isn't part of the school curriculum. We want to help engage young people in the world of finance.
What is your opportunity?
How might we engage and teach young people about money?
Who is your audience?
Our customers are teens from 10-16 who don't know about finance and aren't taught anything about finance normally in thir school.
What Is Your Solution?
Our solution is a program with activities and fun games as well as a quizzed obstacle course. It is a way to teach students to handle their money while engaging them by talking about topics they would be interested. For example, students in the older years might be interested in saving for uni and cars while younger kids are interested in saving things like pocket money and separating fun buying vs saving for the future. The obstacle course would have questions to do with finance and if you answer wrong you have to do a physical task and if you get it right you get through to the next section.
