To ease access to financial education and promote a culture of economic planning.
How we started.
In 2020, we launched The Young Investors Challenge, which is one of the largest investment competitions in the world. We designed and developed a web platform, and $10,000 in cash prizes was awarded to the winners. For the 2020-21 edition, more than 3800 teenagers from the United States & Canada registered for free, and the initiative was featured on Nasdaq, Bloomberg, The Motley Fool and more.
Throughout the Challenge, many participants asked us for resources that they could use to learn about investing. We then realized that many teenagers lack financial education and are unable to find a proper learning environment. For that exact reason, we are attempting to change the world of financial education!
Financial literacy is part of the backbone of a healthy and successful future. We are proud of supporting Invest Org in its mission.
In Fall 2021, the simple-to-use innovative Invest Org app will be available for free on the App Store. Users will have access to a large amount of high-quality content, and will be provided with theoretical and practical forms of financial education. The program will be divided into the three following sections: Investor Academy, Young Investors Challenge and Club Network & Communities. We have also launched in Summer 2021 the Female Financial Force, which will create a safe environment for young women to learn about finance and investing. By 2025, our goal is to assure that financial education is taught in every high school in Canada and the United States!
By integrating theory, practice and social interactions in our app, we believe that learning will be fun and engaging for all users. .
