A lot of young people we talked to felt there was a lot of information out there but it lacked the context of their financial situation and guidance on what tangible actions they should take.
Quirk is a fully personalised app where Gen Z can learn about, track and grow their finances.
"So far Quirk definitely seems to be one of the best and my preferred option so keep up the good work."
"Right away I could see that Quirk was different. So thank you for finally creating an app that does what it says on the tin!"
"I love this app! You're off to a really strong start! Looking forward to seeing what's ahead for you."
"The design is the best I've seen on a money app and really friendly. I think you've done a really good job setting up sensible next steps on the financial plan."

"Very impressed - slick, intuitive, and fast interface"
Quirk started off initially as a consulting project in collaboration with Telefonica’s innovation lab. They loved our idea so much that they cut us our first cheque to make our concept a reality. That was our very first lesson as designers - how do we take our designs and turn them into a lucrative business? Over the course of the past few years, we’ve been continuously trying to solve that problem. We had to make some tough calls, constantly juggling design, tech, and business objectives. I’ve had to wear many hats from pitching to investors to designing our MVP and product managing our engineers. I learned how to hire and manage a scrappy team, get out of my comfort zone to market directly to our users on social media, learn the financial aspects of running a business and be customer support for our users. I’ve learned even with very few resources - we could do a lot in terms of delighting and engaging our users. It's been a privilege to witness the evolution of a mere idea into a tangible product that's now used by thousands of people.
