Till Financial—a kid-focused money management app—is giving children the confidence to save and spend their own money. YPulse’s education research found that 39% of today’s high school and college students wish personal finance was taught in school. Financial confidence is something young consumers want, and a new money management app, Till Financial, just raised $5 million to help bring financial education to life. Till is teaching children under 18-years-old how to be smart spenders and savers, and describes itself as a “collaborative family financial tool” that encourages conversations about money between parents and their kids—something not many legacy banks or other digital money tools are doing. The free platform gives kids a bank account, a physical and digital debit card, and a goal-based savings account. Kids can work towards goals like saving for an iPad, and can invite family members to match their savings. While there’s a plethora of money management apps and mobile banks out there, Till Financial is putting young people first by helping them learn necessary financial lessons. (TechCrunch)
