Remember when we all paid for things with cash! The change from things like a $4.20 cup of coffee added up in a jar or in the bottom of a handbag. Eventually we took it down to the bank as a boost to our savings account.

Now with tap and pay, the days of loose change have gone. That got the founders at FirstStep thinking. What if there was a way to create that jar of coins on our Smartphones so that we save as we spend? And what if, by the wonders of technology, one can direct those savings into investments that align with one’s own interests. It was that thinking that led the FirstStep founders on a two-year journey to transform the way we save.
