Penny is female-founded, venture backed, financial education platform transforming the fintech industry.

Making money is stressful and hard, especially for women. If nothing else changes, women will retire with 1/3 the net worth of men, because of an investing gap. We are not cool with that.

We want to revolutionize the way women learn about money. Our mission is to give women a better way to manage their personal finances in order to get out of debt + into investing. Penny provides tech-forward, beginner friendly, self-powered money tools to high potential women.
