Empower is reimagining the relationship that consumers have with their money. Starting with an AI powered financial assistant that helps anyone understand their money, save, improve credit and build wealth. With over a quarter of a million users in the first year, we were voted one of Apple's New Apps We Love, Time's #11 Best New App of 2017 and were a finalist for Product Hunt App of the Year.

Later this summer, Empower will be launching our next phase- a new kind of bank and investment firm for young professionals, powered by an AI assistant that helps consumers make the best decisions they can with their money.
