Problem Statement

Young people lack the education to understand their finances. We asked how might we create a connection between the finance and school systems, to create a better understanding of finance?

Customer / Problem

Young people struggle to understand their finances and are not taught important information to help them as they start to manage money. According to our research one in five parents do not feel confident in explaining finance and 54% have not spoken to their children about finance. Our target audience is teenagers and young adults starting work. 


We created a financial education program and mobile app that supports young people to learn about finance.

The app will cover a range of topics from saving to superannuation to taxes and terminology.
