Financial EduTech (social enterprise/for-profit)

Looking for: Developer, Marketer, Product manager
OPPORTUNITY:  There are literally millions of people the world-over suffering from financial illiteracy (never learned how to budget, save and/or invest), which means they are massively disadvantaged in their earning capacity and enjoying a better quality of life. Furthermore, financial illiteracy puts a direct strain on the economy and society as a whole. The worst affected cohorts are marginalised women (normally single/divorced/widowed) and young adults (Gen Y & Z).

EXPERIENCE:  Having studied accounting & finance; been an investor from a young age; and first-hand seen family and friends suffer financially due to their lack of skills in budgeting, saving and investing, there is an obvious need for such a concept and my vision is to create a social enterprise whereby we generate revenue and a profit, but offer services free of charge to our identified target markets. I am working towards achieving this goal right now.

PROGRESS: Currently building the MVP and blog, after exhaustive research.

BRAND NAME:  I own all domain names.


I'm seeking TWO Co-Founders:

1. Technical/Product Developer - to lead or manage web dev; and

2. Growth Marketer - to help me develop the brand, revenue and growth.
Both individuals must be willing to collaborate and contribute with solid experience & results, energy and ideas.

You are enthusiastic to be a part-owner of a venture you can immerse yourself in and contribute to make a success! You are ready to roll up your sleeves and create a clever, smarter startup. Sweat equity is on offer to create something amazing. Ideal weekly commitment would be from 20-40 hours. If you have initial funds to invest, this would be a bonus but not compulsory.

LOCATION OF CO-FOUNDERS:  Remote works best as we will be using Skype or Whatsapp for scheduled meetings and daily liaison, as required; ideally, cofounders can be based in Europe or Australia, with reliable internet connection at their chosen place of business, maintaining discretion (so not a public place).

Once satisfied with my selection of cofounders, formal Founder agreements will be drawn up, with 'vested' equity depending on experience.

Interested? Please send me a cover letter/note and concise BIO or CV with any links or examples of work/projects to jangelis-parisathotmaildotcom.
