Episode Summary

While access to financial education represents just one facet of economic development, it is an essential objective as it equips us with the proper tools and confidence to make informed financial decisions. Financial literacy can empower communities, and though it may be growing, there is still much work to be done in making it accessible for underserved communities.

In this episode, Ron Haik sits down with Myles Gage, financial literacy advocate and co-founder of Rapunzl. Myles shares why he embarked on a mission to provide underserved communities with barrier-free access to financial education and how exactly their app helps to overcome the roadblocks that prohibit many from understanding investing: fear, exposure, and accessibility.
