Our mission

Money. You might have a lot, or you might have a little. Either way, we all deal with it. We all want to make the most of what we have, feel good about our spending, and put away something for the future.

We all have goals, things we want to do. We think money shouldn’t be the gating factor between where you are and where you want to be.

At Rize, we’re rethinking finance. Saving should be simple and investing shouldn’t be rocket science. Everything we do is designed with you in mind, because we want the same thing. Simple, people-first saving and investing.

Meet the founders

We were tired of big banks taking advantage of the average customer to make the rich richer. The financial industry is designed to be complex and confusing. Saving is hard when your bank takes a big cut, and investing, well that’s for the pros. But it doesn’t have to be. We figured there had to be a better way to get the most from your money.

So we built Rize.

Justin Howell

CEO, Co-Founder

Justin spent the early part of his career on Wall Street and later moved into the startup world. With a wealth of knowledge on finance and human behavior, Rize was the obvious brainchild for Justin. As the CEO, Justin is responsible for maintaining our strategic vision, meeting with investors, and spreading the word about the work we do. On the off chance he’s not brainstorming our next big feature, you can find him hiking in the closest national park.

Kirk Voltz

Head of Product, Co-Founder

Kirk is a designer by trade, and leader by nature. After spending some time freelancing around the world, he came back to D.C. to start a new chapter. As the Head of Product, Kirk wears many hats to keep our team pushing forward. His eye for detail and drive for excellent user experience is what brings Rize to life. If he’s not in the office, Kirk is usually spending quality time with his kids or sipping his favorite local brew.
