There are very few FinTech companies run by Black women. In fact, the majority of FinTech companies are run by white men, because—let’s face it—that’s who gets VC funding.Despite the fact that Black women are starting new businesses at a rate faster than anyone else, when it comes to venture capital, Black women still get less than 1% of funding. Enter Tanya Van Court. The former Nickelodeon executive is a founder who’s tipping these stats in the right direction. To date, she's raised over $2M in funding for her kid-friendly money app Goalsetter. She’s disrupting the $127B FinTech industry with her mission to make financial learning fun and accessible and to help families become financially healthy and empower them to achieve their goals. In this episode of WorkParty, we sit down with Tanya to learn more about how she’s making financial literacy more accessible, taking on the FinTech giants, and giving back to the community while she’s at it.
