We're Jude & Olga
Over the past 10 years, we have built one of the largest global communities of women and have transformed many financial services companies.
After talking to thousands of women, we learned that there is no safe and welcoming space for women to discuss the money questions impacting their lives and to get practical help.
With a team of global thought leaders specialising in gender equality and finance, we set out to change that - to revolutionise the way women discuss and plan their money. The result is SmartPurse, together we've got this!
Since more than a decade Jude and Olga pioneer societal change for gender equality and change the financial services industry:
- Jude is one of the most powerful women in UK arts and the founder of the WoW foundation, now active in over 20 countries
- Olga co-founded the award--winning women program at UBS and is an advocate for financial literacy reaching over 1.2 million readers with her independent column "Money Talks" at Watson news in Switzerland
This March, SmartPurse broke new grounds being selected as the only female founded startup (from 300 applicants) to join Swiss Fintech incubator and fund Tenity.
