Realword, a mobile app that helps users navigate finance, health, work, and life, has raised $3.2m in funding.
The round was led by Fitz Gate Ventures, with participation from TTV Capital, Bezos Expeditions, Techstars, Knightsgate, The Helm and others. Notable angels and operators backed the team, including Olympic Gold Medalist Aly Raisman, Rent the Runway co-founder Jenny Fleiss, and Yext co-founder Howard Lerman.
Through its comprehensive library of “playbooks,” Realworld helps its users manage their finances, health care, living situations, insurance, and other important life decisions through personalised, actionable task lists.
Since its release in 2021, Realworld said its app has been top of the charts on the app store and has grown its user base over ten times.
Genevieve Bellaire, founder and CEO, said, “In the last year, we tripled the size of our team and launched our mobile app with 40+ step-by-step ‘playbooks’ across everything from credit cards to health insurance. Beyond educating the next-generation about these topics, we have expanded Realworld to provide a proactive and engaging solution to help our users actually set themselves up for success.
“We have cracked the code on teaching complex adult topics in a streamlined and easy-to-digest format, and this capital will help us change the way the next generation navigates adulthood, beginning with entering the workforce and continuing throughout their entire lives as they make important life decisions.”
Another FinTech targeting young people is Copper. The US bank set out to become teens’ bank account of choice, has raised $29m in Series A funding.
