Help us build a new financial system that aligns people, planet, and profit!
Gaia is on a mission to make it easy for everyone to save, spend, and invest for a sustainable future. In order to tackle sustainability issues such as climate change, inequality, and global health, money will be playing a critical role. This is why we are on a mission to turn the financial system upside down by investing in companies that takes responsibility for a sustainable future. We're a small team of 7 people with backgrounds ranging from financial services, technology, and NGOs.
With our members at the heart of every decision, we're building products that help people achieve financial freedom while making a positive impact on the world. Investing is hard enough on its own. Investing for a better world is 10x harder. That's why our first product is an investing app that helps people invest in causes that matter to them.
Today, we're live in closed beta and are getting ready to scale. Therefore, we need more people to help us achieve our mission.
