StreetFins and the Financial Literacy Journal have agreed to merge all operations to provide a unified financial news and education service. The Financial Literacy Journal’s articles and initiatives will be consolidated to operate under the StreetFins brand and the StreetFins website.
The Financial Literacy Journal, based in Mercer Island, Washington, is a financial education site run by high school students. It was founded by Alex Patel in 2018. The educational resources that the Financial Literacy Journal has provided in a diverse set of financial topics will serve as an asset to StreetFins moving forward. Through this merger, both parties are better enabled to accomplish a common goal of increasing financial education among the next generation.
StreetFins, founded in 2017, is a financial news and education organization that aims to end financial illiteracy through empowering students to learn finance in a simple and understandable way while also providing students with a platform in which they can teach other students. StreetFins achieves this goal through a financial news platform where students write articles and create content for other students and through a network of school clubs focused on financial education. By unifying operations with the Financial Literacy Journal, StreetFins will be able to scale all its efforts to achieve its mission of global student financial literacy and participation.
Rohan Gupta, co-founder of StreetFins comments, “What the Financial Literacy Journal will bring to StreetFins, in terms of people and content, will undoubtedly allow StreetFins to become a larger, more impactful organization within financial education. I’m excited to see Alex and the rest of the FLJournal team join us.” Rohan is an incoming freshman at USC.
“Merging with StreetFins makes a lot of sense for us given our shared mission of promoting financial literacy. It is encouraging to see that we aren’t the only ones working on financial education. I’m looking forward to working with Rohan and the rest of the StreetFins team to make financial education accessible to our fellow peers,” explains Alex Patel. Alex is an incoming freshman at Stanford University.
StreetFins will continue to be student-led and student-focused in regards to all future content. Learn more at https://streetfins.com/about-us.
