Our story

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is spending more than you earn. It's too easy to do in this consumer-driven world! Rize was built to turn that around, so you earn more than you spend. We bring a unique approach to help Rizers automatically save and manage their money one goal at a time all in one place.

Our Community

We're designers, data freaks, coders, support professionals, but most of all... we're Rize. Our community is inspired by doers. Those who are willing to work for an opportunity. Our Rizers want to succeed, want to do it better, and want to change the conversation around money.

"Rize wants to make it easy.

Ridiculously easy."

Andy Medici, Washington Business Journal
