About Parthean

Most people were never taught about personal finance and in 2020, this cost Americans a collective $415 Billion. This is one of the world’s biggest societal problems, but it’s a solvable one.

At Parthean, we build hyper-personalized, bite-sized, and engaging financial education so that everyone can learn what they need, right when they need it.

Our founder, Arman (CEO), has worked as an engineer at Google, an Adjunct Professor of Full-Stack Web Development at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), and given tech talks globally on behalf of CMU, Google Cloud, Android, and more (see here).

We’re backed by world-class investors like Pear VC, founder of Morning Brew, founder of The Points Guy, founder of RXBar, and dozens of others.
