In just two weeks since the launch of the app Credit Stacker, over 200,000 people have downloaded the app, which teaches people about personal finance, credit management, and entrepeunership
The app is so fun and innovative and catchy that its creator, Angel Rich, is already being hailed as a tech pioneer, with Forbes naming her “The Next Steve Jobs”.
The Office of Michelle Obama has called the app the “best financial literacy product in the country,” and the Department of Education has called it the “best learning game in the country,” with JP Morgan Chase adding that it is the “best solution in the world for reducing poverty.”
The app has also won the Industrial Bank Small Business Regional Competition and the Black Enterprise Elevator Pitch Competition, and in all, Rich has received more than $50,000 in business grants.
However, Rich has been clear about the fact that she still faces major hurdles in a tech industry that often discriminates against women and people of color.
As she told Forbes during an interview, “My competitor raised $75 million. I won best financial product and best learning game. My company raised only $200,000.”
But that doesn’t mean anything is going to stop Rich, and she has plans to keep pushing her company, The Wealth Factory, forward.
