What We're Building

Finnest is a mobile banking application and secured debit card that helps school kids to experience the world of digital money by letting them participate in it. Learning how to handle money is an experimental process rather than a tutorial one and Finnest provides this “learning by doing” training by guiding kids and their parents with the app as they earn, save and responsibly spend money.
