We’re Brigit

We help everyday Americans build a brighter financial future.

Our mission

We define our success by yours. With transparent, fair, and simple tools, we help you avoid overdrafts, access cash when you need it, build credit, spend wisely, avoid unfair fees, and start saving more. We don’t just reduce stress — we promote sustainable financial health.

Our story

Did the economy add enough jobs last month? How’s the stock market doing? These may be the concerns of the mainstream media, but who’s asking about your financial health? What if you’re employed — and still struggling?


Maybe, like more than three-quarters of the American population, you live paycheck to paycheck. Maybe, like them, you don’t even have $400 socked away for emergencies. You’d like to save for the future, but where do you even start?

Start with Brigit. We built it for you.

Brigit is a holistic financial health app that helps you cut your stress, build your credit, save, and budget for your future. We don’t insert any hidden fees when you’re not looking. With our simple tools, we teach you financial literacy so you can understand and anticipate your expenses, manage and protect your credit, and make sure you have access to emergency funds if you need them.


We want you to have a stable financial future, and we want to help you get there. Because when your bottom line improves, our bottom line improves. To read more about our story, see here.

Our values

We’re dedicated to just one thing: your financial health. So we make sure we always meet three key standards.
Fair.

Fairness

Our founding principle is to look out for—not make a quick buck from—people in need.

Search.

Transparency

When it comes to finances, nobody likes surprises. With Brigit, there are no hidden costs, ever. Ever.

Simple.

Simplicity

Finance is complicated enough. Our app is designed to not only be easy to use, but actually reduce stress.

Our team

Our team comes from diverse backgrounds, but are united in the fight for our members’ financial security and freedom. With experience at Amazon, Deutsche Bank, Palantir, Two Sigma and more, our experts not only have the tools to solve financial insecurity—they’ve witnessed the problem firsthand. At big banks we’ve seen the injustice of inequality. At leading tech companies we’ve learned to build from the best. Now we’re putting both to use to change lives every day.

Zuben Mathews.

“Working in finance, I saw firsthand the kinds of inequality plaguing America. I knew there was a better way, and with the help of brilliant people, I could find it. In just two years we’ve already changed millions of lives — but we’re just getting started.”
