We truly believe that our 20s are the most defining and exciting decade of our lives. Graduating and stepping into the real world is exhilarating, but it can also feel like the scariest time in your life. There are so many big decisions to be made—landing that dream job, figuring out how to have enough money for all your dreams, and dealing with student loans. It's overwhelming, especially when it feels like everyone else has it all figured out and you’re the only one left confused.
(Spoiler alert: they're probably just as confused as you!)
We're the co-founders of Frich, before starting Frich and settling down in NYC in our early 20s, we worked across different continents and tried to “figure it out”. But even with all those experiences, we still felt clueless about building credit, figuring out how much is normal to spend on social lives, and whether we were “behind” others financially.
We were bombarded with ads from financial institutions that felt completely irrelevant to us, and we found ourselves scrolling through questionable life advice on TikTok. What we actually wanted to know is this: what are people our age ACTUALLY doing with their money?? That's when we realized that money isn't just about budgeting or investing—it's woven into every decision we make in life. How much should we spend on therapy? Where can we take our date without breaking the bank? How do we actually retire early?
We wanted to break the money taboo and make money a social topic. That's why we created Frich. We believe in 100% transparency and raw truth. As a user, you can see how you compare to people just like you in all areas related to money. This gives you the confidence to make quick decisions that align with your financial situation. When it comes to money, sometimes there's no time for goal-setting—you just need to figure out the best thing to do as quickly as possible. That's what we aim to provide at Frich—a clear view of where you stand financially compared to your peers and potential solutions that have worked for your community.
At night, when we close our eyes, we dream of a world where everyone can feel confident about money, regardless of the school they went to or the family they grew up in. Join us at Frich, and let's make money a topic that's social and empowering!
