Our Journey

Hello World, We're Rize

June 21st, 2017

Rize is the passion project of 5 guys from DC who got tired of being screwed by money (or lack thereof).

We live in a world custom designed to help us spend every cent we earn (and then some). The problem is, if we spend all our money today, there’s nothing left for tomorrow. Tomorrow You is going to be understandably upset upon discovering that Today You pissed away all the dough. That’s where most of us are heading, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Rize helps you put money aside for the future for things like an Emergency Fund, getting out of debt, buying a house, taking that dream vacation, etc. Whatever it is you care about in the future, Rize is the perfect way to make sure you’ve got the money to make it happen.

We use technology to completely automate your savings so you can effortlessly set money aside out of each paycheck. We use behavioral science to help you figure out how much to save, what goals to put those savings towards, and to save more and more over time. Sound good? It’s pretty frickin’ awesome.

On the surface, we’re the underdogs — just five guys from the east coast who believe there should be a better way to save our money. Who are we to stare Big Finance in the face and say, “You should be ashamed!”? Well, that’s exactly what we’re doing, and we believe we’ve got the grit and gumption to flip the financial industry on its head.

Does that sound exciting to you? Well then, come join the movement and put yourself back in control of your future. Sign up now at rizeup.io.

Together, we all Rize.
