Launchpad start-up, Money Story, has received grant funding from the Social Investment Business Reach Fund to enable them to develop their product.

The Money Story digital platform helps users explore their financial identities, coaching them to improve their financial wellbeing via unique insights and financial reflection.

Jones Oviawe, Money Story Founder & Chief Executive Officer, explained how the grant will help move the company into the next phase of development: “We’re delighted to receive this investment. The fund’s focus is exclusively on social impact companies, so it’s great we’ve been recognised as we’re on a mission to empower people to realise that having a healthy relationship with finance can boost their wellbeing.

“The funding will allow us to grow our market presence and complete improvements to our technology following BETA feedback. We’ll also now look to explore broader market vertical opportunities for our pilot project pipeline.”

The Reach Fund is a grant programme that helps charities and social enterprises raise investment. The programme is funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, and is open to organisations in England.

The program is designed to help those creating positive change for people, planet and place – from reducing social inequalities or tackling climate change, to creating inclusive economic growth and enhancing well-being.

As research continues with Exeter University and the EU Centre for Human Health & Environment, this move should see Money Story gain access to strategic counsel, guidance and access to partners in order to best deliver real impact for society when the app is launched in Q1 2021.

"Joining Allia is a great opportunity to connect with a larger community of social impact founders and secure support to maximise our reach. The experience of their mentoring teams and partner companies will be invaluable in charting our course to be a leader in contemplative finance." Jones Oviawe; Founder & Chief Executive Officer.
