CT-Based FinTron and Stamford Public Schools Partner to Teach Financial Literacy and Career Readiness
Saturday, October 1, 2022

FinTronU Educational Software Will Enhance State-Led Career Pathways Program

STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- FinTron, Inc., a fast-growing financial technology company promoting financial literacy and freedom for the Mobile Generation (Gen Y and Z), announces its partnership with Stamford Public Schools (SPS) to teach personal finance and career readiness to the system's high school students.

Through a two-year licensing agreement that began August 2022, FinTronU Educational Software will be implemented in the SPS high school curriculum as part of the Career Pathways, Workplace Learning and Apprenticeships, a state-led initiative to develop a high level of career and life readiness among students. Additionally, FinTron will offer opportunities for SPS students to shadow its employees and serve internships at its Stamford headquarters.

"We are thrilled to partner with FinTron to help our students access real-world professional experiences and learn what it means to be financially healthy," Career Pathways Assistant Principal Dr. Claudia Berlage said. "Personal finance knowledge is a critical life skill. Whether students attend college or pursue a career directly after high school, they need a solid understanding of budgeting, saving and investing."

In an engaging and interactive manner that appeals to today's mobile generation, the FinTronU software teaches essential financial concepts. It even features a simulated trading game for students to invest with fake cash and compete with other school districts for cash prizes.

Wilder Rumpf, FinTron founder and CEO, commends and thanks SPS for piloting the software, as he works with the Connecticut Department of Education to expand its use throughout the state: "We greatly appreciate Claudia and Stamford Public Schools for believing in our vision and partnering with us to help today's younger generations learn to be financially capable and independent. We firmly believe that financial education is the key to making sound decisions and achieving long-term success in life."

As the average FinTron employee is just 25 years of age, it closely identifies with its Gen Y/Z target audience. Rumpf, 26 and a Connecticut native, founded the company in 2017 while attending Sacred Heart University. In 2019 FinTron became one of the youngest firms to register as a broker-dealer (FinTron Invest LLC). It has since created a national digital footprint, serving clients throughout the U.S. in all 53 states and territories, with its education-based, commission-free mobile brokerage application, fueled by nearly $10 million of funding. The FinTron team has also voluntarily presented financial literacy and entrepreneurship programs to more than 3,000 U.S. high school and college students. Rumpf says this hands-on experience was invaluable to their development of the FinTronU Educational Software.

Dr. Tamu Lucero, superintendent of SPS, said: "We believe this is a great opportunity and will surely enrich the SPS Career Pathways experience. We look forward to improving our students' understanding of personal finance and helping them feel confident about their future beyond high school."
