Overview

Personal financial stress is a major contributor to lower productivity, high health-care costs, and increased absenteeism at the enterprise level. In addition, financial education solutions are often out of date, overly strict in their advice, or just plain boring. That is why Banzai creates online financial education solutions that provide real advice for real people when real life happens. Our products are engaging for individual users and scalable for enterprises. With experience-based curriculum, Banzai helps employees in learning financial discipline and time-proven principles of fiscal responsibility.

Banzai’s primary focus is giving organizations the tools to create a culture of financial education. Most other financial education providers tend to let their products stagnate, thus becoming outdated and irrelevant when the marketplace changes. Banzai is solely focused on financial literacy and continually refreshes, updates, and creates new products.

In addition, and probably most importantly, Banzai fills in the gaps from the time an employee is onboarded to when they retire. There are many wonderful financial wellness benefits out there i.e. 401k, HSA, FSA, etc. for employees to take advantage of. However, most don't know how to take advantage of them because they have not been properly educated. Likewise, most don't have the knowledge or guidance they need to take on the financial milestones that take place prior to retirement i.e. buying a home, car, paying off student loans, getting out of credit card debt, etc. This is where Banzai is most valuable.
