Challenge: increasing peoples' knowledge about money does not impact their behavior. Our program therefore focuses on emotions and behavior. Our 1st product a mobile game has reached 25k teens to date.
We are a social venture devoted to raise financial literacy within the young and future generations.
Money is less about numbers and interest than about understanding and positively changing one‘s own behavior. Are you in for scaling innovative methods and projects for financial education in Europe? Because we want to see future generations that deal with their resources sustainably and make financial decisions in an informed, confident way for their own and their communities‘ benefit.
To reach that goal, we are innovating new tools (e.g. games, apps), work with stakeholders from all different fields - from youth workers to young people, from politicians to bankers. And we do our own, behavioural-based research.
We’ve been prototyping our venture in Austria since 06/12 and have prepared our Swiss market launch since 09/13.
At present our core-team consists of the visionary Katharina Norden (co-founder, CEO) and the hands-on Eva-Bettina Gruber (COO).
After the proof-of-concept of our 1st product (the mobile game CURE Runners) in Austria, which reached 25,000 teenagers, we now pilot and develop additional educational tools and scale our venture to Switzerland.
The invitation to present as best practice at the OECD financial education conference shows us: we are innovators and we will continue to exhaust all possibilities to make financial education work.
