What You Will Learn

Learn about a creative way to help children understand money management with Luke Hohmann. Most of us would agree that we could have benefited from being more financially literate at a young age. Unfortunately, this has typically not been a skill developed until much later on in life, sometimes after making several tough decisions.

Luke's FinTech company, FirstRoot, is set out to change that by creating a fun way for kids to start managing 'real money' at an early age. We'll talk about how the company is doing so far, and how you can get involved in this initiative.

We will also talk about how software solutions can continue to play a beneficial role in our lives in the future. Join us for this educational talk, and maybe even have your kids listen in too.
