Durham, NC – February 17, 2020 – Mobile financial literacy app provider Zogo had a very active 2019, winning multiple industry awards, signing more than two dozen clients, and creating strategic partnerships that will help pave the way for continued success in 2020 and beyond.
In the awards category, Zogo won:

- “Best of Show” at Finovate Fall 2019 in New York City

Signing clients in 2019:
Since the NACUSO competition in April 2019, Zogo has brought abroad more than two dozen credit unions, banks and even fortune 50 insurance companies to help teach young adults (and “more established” adults) sound financial fundamentals through its app that pays them to learn. As a result, more than 200,000 educational modules within the Zogo app have been completed by credit union members and bank customers last year.
In addition, Zogo started production of its compelling “Humans of Credit Unions” Facebook page last year. Humans of Credit Unions displays a multitude of personal anecdotes from young adults (anonymous) experiencing financial challenges and successes. This site exposes the unfortunate lack of financial education for today’s young adults, leaving them vulnerable to possible hardships down the road – and also the lack of awareness about credit unions among young adults.
“For our first real year in the financial services industry, it’s been incredibly active and rewarding,” states Zogo Co-founder/CEO Bolun Li. “But we feel we have only scratched the surface of what we want to accomplish and look forward to a much more active 2020 – all to help young adults develop a solid financial foundation for a better future.”
