It’s been a big year for Zogo. We’ve won accolades at Finovate Fall 2019 and the 2019 NACUSO Next Big Idea Competition. Users completed over half a million of our bite-sized financial literacy learning modules. And our number of users shot up from 5,000 in December to nearly 38,000 today.
We’ve also partnered with 20 financial institutions and companies to promote financial literacy among young adults and other underbanked populations.
Last year, our CEO Bolun Li didn’t even think that number was possible. When his mentor Scott Ogle suggested the goal of signing ten new partners in about six months, he hesitated.
“I was just looking at him like, ‘There’s no freaking way we’re going to be able to do that,” Li said.
Now, the list is double that size — and still growing.
Each Zogo partner decides which zip code or zip codes they’d like to sponsor. For users in that area, he app is branded with that institution’s logo as users complete modules, learn about money and finance and earn rewards.
“Zogo is such a timely application, built to connect with young adults as they are beginning to learn the value of money,” Jack Antonini, former CEO of USAA Bank and president of NACUSO, has said about the company. “Delivered through the ubiquitous mobile phone, this app can help credit unions capture new members, while teaching and reinforcing responsible financial habits.”
