We’re building Finimize to solve a massive problem: we want to help people get their personal finances in order – not just savings, not just investments. But everything. Your whole financial life.
It all started when we had some savings ourselves and couldn’t figure out what to do with them. Everyone tells you to budget and save. But no one tells you what to do after that.
No one explained to you why interest rates matter, how you’re supposed to “diversify” your finances, or what an “emergency fund” is.
So we decided we would start with the basics, and launched a daily email to explain these concepts in simple terms as they coincide with financial news.
Since then we have expanded our team, built Finimize MyLife (your free personal financial guide) and grown our community to over 100,000 Finimizers!
We want to become the top of mind brand for finance – similar to how Amazon is the top of mind for shopping. Let’s get there together.
We’re backed by a team with a track record of building successful companies and a wealth of knowledge in the FinTech sector. They’re also pretty great people.
Our mission is too big for us to be able to achieve it ourselves. Our community is at the center of what we’re doing. They’re global, they’re powerful, and they’re ready for some change.
Before Finimize, Max co-founded an eCommerce startup with 200 employees and sold it in 2015. Now he spends his days leading our strategy and basically doing every job you can think of. He also mentors at Techstars and Startup Bootcamp and was named one of Forbes “30 under 30” for 2016.
Anders, Head of Product
Originally a Finimize user, Anders has designed FinTech products for Fortune 500 clients. He oversees our design and can be found jumping between Sketch, code, and the mug of coffee on his desk.
Scott Tindle, Co-Founder
Originally a university friend of Max, Scott is a CFA ® charterholder with 7 years of experience at Barclays Capital under his belt.
Matt, Tech Lead
Matt previously worked at IBM iX before joining Finimize. He’s in charge of pushing code and oversees all our tech. He’s the only one of us with an actual British accent – and the only one with a patent under his belt.
We’re Making Finance Accessible For Our Generation.
Our generation enjoys a high degree of education and is lucky to be fairly well off. But there’s an elephant in the room that finally needs to be addressed: we’re quietly struggling with financial literacy.
