Teach your child financial literacy

While rewarding them for making financially savvy decisions

Try Finacy

Finacy makes your job as a parent easier by educating your child with the most fundamental and current of financial principles!

Debit and credit, stocks and bonds, inflation and interest rates, crypto and NFTs. The world of finance is only getting more complicated to navigate, even for the savviest of folks and our youngest generations are falling further and further behind. Finacy was born out of the frustration that kids today need better tools to equip them for a successful financial future.

1. How much does it cost?

The Finacy platform is currently free (as we’re still in beta).

2. Who’s building Finacy?

The Finacy platform is being developed by a competent team of designers, developers and most importantly former educators and curriculum designers. Finacy is a PublicSquare venture, a socially driven venture studio based out of Toronto, Canada.

3. Why are you building Finacy?

In our world today, financial institutions benefit from our lack of understanding of financial tools and our education systems barely cover the basics, leaving most people (especially those in financially vulnerable situations to begin with) to make costly mistakes and often ending up in cycles of debt. As a social venture studio, our incubating team identified the connection between strong financial education at a young age and financial safety throughout one’s life, and hence, Finacy was born.

4. How do I get in touch with the Finacy team?
