On our last #MillennialTalk Twitter Chat, we talked about “Lies That Twentysomethings Need to Stop Believing.”
Tuesday, June 30 at 8pm EST, we are speaking with Qapital.com @QapitalApp about “How to Budget Like a Boss.”
Qapital was founded in 2012 on the principle that managing money should be easy and fun. George Friedman, Qapital’s CEO, built the founding team from the most talented people he could find. He recruited the most inspiring colleagues he’d met through banking, both on Wall Street and at the Swedish brokerage bank Avanza. He and an award-winning team of designers assembled a product team, all of whom wanted to take a new approach to banking. Qapital launched its first product, a mobile money management app in Sweden in 2013.
Soon after, the team decided to branch out and take Qapital to the US, where millions of millennials and young adults were without a service that could speak to the way they really live their lives.
Saving small with the app and Qapital account is just the beginning. Qapital’s goal is to change the way that young professionals bank in the 21st century and beyond.
Qaptial.com consists of a team of passionate people who believe that banking can be easier, simpler, and most of all fairer. Qapital offers an app with bank-level security, FDIC-insured accounts, and a team that’s ready to help you live your best life, on your terms.
