Closing The Financial Literacy Gap With Your Juno Founders Margot & Alexia de Broglie

In this 40 Minute Mentor episode, we’re joined by sisters, Margot and Alexia de Broglie, Co-Founders of Your Juno – an app widely referred to as ‘the Duolingo of Finance’ and on a mission to empower women and non-binary people through financial education. 

At a time when only 2.2% of funding goes to female led tech companies, Your Juno raised an amazing £1.6 million to close the financial gender gap, in a funding round led by InReach Ventures alongside a board of predominantly female angel investors.

In today’s episode we get an exclusive insight into Your Juno’s amazing journey from conception to over 10k downloads, including: 

➡️ How building an app that’s one of its kind has meant focusing on consumer education and putting community first. 

➡️ The three essential criteria they look for when hiring and how initially hiring freelancers who have now gone perm has helped them build the incredible Your Juno team to date.

➡️ And insights into how big the financial literacy gap really is and what it takes to close this knowledge and confidence gap. 

💙A big thank you to our Sponsors:
