A Banking Solution
For Financial Institutions.
Backed by Science.
Zogo is a white-label mobile banking application for financial institutions and for parents and teens. Parents set up an allowance for their teens, who need to complete educational modules in the app to receive a full allowance. Applying the latest behavioral economic research developed at Duke, we are fundamentally changing how teenagers learn about personal finance and interact with your financial institution.
An Education Tool
Unlike Any Education Tool.
Today’s financial education is boring. By embedding behavioral principles and teaching moments in teenagers’ daily interaction with money, we make financial education meaningful and engaging.
