NASHVILLE – 3/26/2020 — VolCorp, a not-for-profit financial cooperative that serves natural person credit unions nationally, is pleased to announce a new partnership with award-winning, mobile financial literacy app provider Zogo. Through this strategic affiliation, Zogo will have the opportunity to provide VolCorp member credit unions the most unique financial literacy app for teens on the market today.
Zogo is an iOS and Android app that pays users to learn about personal finance. The app is designed to take the user through a variety of different financial topics, ranging from budgeting to credit, to insurance and investing. The topics start off simple in nature and grow in complexity as you move through the modules. The more modules you complete, the more points you score. Those points can be cashed in for prizes like t-shirts or gift cards, provided by the credit union.
“Our member credit unions want to provide leading edge products and services for their members,” said Wade Stapleton, VP, Marketing/Innovation at VolCorp. “Zogo is one of those special, state-of-the-art products that will allow credit unions to differentiate themselves from the competition.”
“We are so excited to work with VolCorp,” said Bolun Li, Zogo’s Co-Founder and CEO. “It’s incredible to see the energy around our product so far. We look forward to providing Zogo to VolCorp’s member credit unions, helping Gen Z and Millennials learn financial literacy and helping credit unions go viral among the young adults.”
Zogo was founded by Duke students majoring in Economics and Computer Science who wanted to make financial education more accessible for people of all ages. Today, Zogo has a diverse team of top professionals taking it to the next level.
Volunteer Corporate Credit Union (VolCorp) is a not-for-profit financial cooperative that serves natural person credit unions nationally.
