LearnVest is a fun, interactive, personal finance tool that fills the gap between complicated books and expensive financial advisors. LearnVest walks users through personal financial issues step-by-step via dynamic LearnVest Checklists.
LearnVest’s Checklists (aka, cheat sheets) currently cover over 50 topics and help users tackle financial life events such as: getting out of debt, budgeting for a wedding, buying your first stock, or applying for a student loan—one step at a time, with expert advice.
Users can save their progress via their profiles, reference a complete set of financial basics, or ask the community a question.
LearnVest understands that personal finance is painful, and thus, motivates users to tackle their finances by earning “LV points and badges”, which create status within the community and offer opportunities for rewards.
