Can I afford this right now? Whether it’s a new computer or an old debt, it’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves at one time or another.
New York-based Moven, a mobile banking service, hopes to answer that question – offering consumers the ability to track and analyze their real-time spending.
Though the company was founded in 2011, it’s in the last eight months that things have really started moving for Moven. In March they took their mobile app out of beta, and shortly thereafter raised an $8 million Series A, with plans to expand their operations to Canada and New Zealand.
“There are a lot of mobile banks, but no one is pursuing it from a mobile spending perspective, offering real time insight,” Amanda Stanhaus, Moven’s Community Manager, told us. “…The app is built around giving you data about your spending habits to help you spend better.”
With reportedly booming sign-ups, Moven is hiring new community managers every day – get all the details here.
And if you’re interested in getting a handle on your finances, you can learn more about Moven and download the app for iOS or Android here.
We’re doing all that we can this week to help you optimize your #smw12 experience. While each of our hubs serve as homes for specific content areas, the number of sessions we host on a specific topic far exceeds the capacity we have in our Hubs.
To help you navigate the schedule and find sessions that are relevant and interesting for you, we’re constructing a series of guides, which we hope will surface new and interesting content you might not have otherwise been aware of.
