About us
Grid is a venture-backed technology startup democratizing financial services for hard-working Americans. More than half of American workers live paycheck-to-paycheck. Stuck in this cycle, they collectively lose billions each year on payday loans, bank overdrafts, and credit card fees. Today’s financial system is built to favor those with money. Grid’s mission is to level that playing field by building financial products that help users better manage their financial future. The Grid app lets users access cash, build credit, get cash back to pay down debt, and save.

Grid has already helped thousands of people get a little closer to their dreams. And we're just getting started.
