About the startups

OpSeeker is the first financial coach that uses Behavioral Economics and AI in order to prepare young individuals to have money for a lifetime. The problem is clear: if we do not start investing for the long-term our society will experience a social and economic crisis as it has never seen before. Millennials can be the first generation with a worse life than their parents if we do not start changing their mentality in regards to money management. OpSeeker serves as an auto-correct for the brain, it works on those cognitive errors and emotional biases that we all have in order to prevent us to make the mistakes that we are wired to make due to our human nature. This way we can have a way better financial life without much effort!
