Welcome to StreetFins!
My name is Rohan Gupta and I’m the co-founder and editor-in-chief of StreetFins, and I’m glad you are here! First, I’d like to congratulate you on coming to this website and for being willing to learn finance! It’s never too early or too late to learn how to be financially literate!
The Problem — Financial Illiteracy
Having the ability to understand finance is undoubtedly one of the most important skills of the 21st century. However, every day we hear about how many Americans aren’t able to properly manage their money, getting deep into debt, and giving up on their dreams of financial stability and success. In fact, according to many reports, rates of financial literacy for American teens rank very low compared to other countries. Many of us don’t understand how to save or manage debt, and even fewer understand things like the stock market or monetary policy. Many people — especially those in our younger generations — are struggling to navigate the world of finance.
I had the privilege of learning finance early on, but I know that not all of us have resources to learn it. Finance can seem intimidating to learn at first, with all the big numbers and confusing industry jargon scaring away those who want to learn. All this contributes to a lack of interest amongst students and younger people to learn finance.
The Solution — StreetFins
My friends and I started StreetFins in order to solve all the problems our generation is facing when we try learning finance. At StreetFins, we’re on a mission to end financial illiteracy. By creating content and resources that truly simplify topics in finance, investing, and economics, we hope to educate our fellow peers and help them become more financially literate. All of our articles, videos, lessons, and other resources are made by students, for students, because we can understand each other better. Together, I know we can master money and live financially stable lives.
I hope now you feel more encouraged and excited to learn finance! If you have any questions or just want to get in touch with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org! We’d love to hear from you!
