Personal finance app HyperJar preps for spring launch
London-based personal finance app HyperJar is getting hyped up for its launch this spring.
The start-up says it’s on “a mission to wake up the billions of pounds sleep-walking through people’s lives, and put that money to work for them”.
It is keeping a lid on its HyperJar and comments as it didn’t respond to questions on Twitter. Its website is also a spartan affair at present.
However, it is live with select pilots and will launch more broadly in 2019. It is currently in “stealth mode”.
The firm was officially founded in 2016. Along with its London office, it has an accelerator centre in Waterloo, Ontario.
Mat Megens is the London-based founder and CEO of HyperJar.
He brings plenty of experience to the table. For example, he’s worked as a consultant – senior supply chain finance product specialist at International Finance Corporation (IFC) in Washington DC.
In addition, Megens has been MD at Mack and Bear in London. This is an advisory firm providing fund-raising, general financing and advice to private equity and venture capital firms, and tech start-ups.
FinTech Futures has contacted Megens for more details about his new venture.
