“Zogo is really excited about wrapping up the year with some new mission-aligned partners,“ said Louden Richason, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Zogo. “Together we will bring accessible, engaging financial education to communities across the United States, and we’re looking forward to more growth in 2021.”
