Amanda K. commented on Cupets: Eco loyalty app & campaign

Yes, Lauren! Thanks! We are aware and will publish soon. :)

Hi Danyelle Sage ! Great idea. Financial literacy is certainly lacking for many Americans and there needs to be a national effort to start embedding it into school curricula early on, especially since the research tells us that literacy training doesn't have as much of an effect on behavior change once we reach adulthood. I love that you are considering a behavioral economics approach! While I think many policy advocates in the financial inclusion space are hopeful that this will become nationally mandated, school-based initiative, I think that innovators such as yourself will help accelerate and complement what is offered in schools.

For your list of partners, you may also want to look into this behavioral economics research organization:

Another early stage startup in financial literacy, which could allow some opportunity for content collaboration: http://www.dollarsed.com/
Finally, you may want to take a look at the work that MoneyThink is doing:
