It's a cashless world, so how do we teach our kids about money? When they just see us tap our card every day, it's impossible for them to connect the dots... Where does money come from? What's it worth in the real world, and how hard is it to get?
Enter SquareOne: Pocket money, jobs, savings... In a way they'll understand (+ managed by you). We're on a mission to lift up our next generation, by helping them be great with money. We had to learn the hard way, so we want something better for our kids - and yours.

We're a proud Kiwi fintech. Join us on this mission to uplift + empower our next generation by helping them be great with money. Our founders are 2 mates with young families. As the kids grow up we’re teaching them lots - including teaching them about money. When we were kids we had piggy-banks, savings books and star charts. We could count our money, and see our physical pile of cash and coins break down and diminish as we spent. We could also watch it build up as we did jobs and saved…
And that’s how it was done for generations. But the move to a cashless world has caught everyone off-guard. Options for youth accounts are limited, and the market’s approach is out of date, and out of touch. So we’re fixing it. For our kids, and yours.
Cheers, from all the SquareOne team.
