PennyBox: Personal Finance For Kids

Adam Naor is a former Google employee who created an app, PennyBox, which is a tool to teach personal finance to kids. Read about his story on Medium.

I founded Pennybox with a simple yet audacious goal: educate kids and families about money. Before I started coding, I spoke with hundreds of parents and asked them this question: Do you teach your kids about money and what are the results?

What I learned was surprising: while all parents thought that financial education was important to the well being of their children, few actively taught financial topics at home, or felt empowered or sufficiently skilled to do so.
