Onward is building the first financial platform for the modern family. We're a highly mission driven organization looking to solve unaddressed pain points for the 50M+ co-parents with separate finances (divorced, separated, blended families, etc.) and build products that enable them and their children to thrive. Our financial platform will redefine how co-parents plan, spend, and save for their children - enabling transparency, healthy communication, and access to capital.

Our current product, the Onward app, is an expense tracking platform that enables co-parents to easily see who is spending what for the children, pay each other back, and streamline the often tense communication around shared finances.
