GravyStack: Investor Shout-Outs

Nov 09, 2022

Introducing GravyStack: a sophisticated banking and gamification engine that incentivizes kids and teens to creatively earn and manage their money with several levels of skill-building, mini-games, and real-world challenges.

Launching in mid-2022, GravyStack was founded by two parents and serial entrepreneurs—Scott Donnell and Travis Adams.

Their collaboration began after they each personally faced the challenge of how to teach their kids about money. Neither of them liked the idea of an allowance, believing that it trains children to expect free money in the future. On the other hand, saying no might lead to resentment.

GravyStack offers a third solution: giving children the skills to earn and manage their own money.

It is more than just a debit card for kids and is better than an allowance. This app breaks down the simplicity of money, from saving to spending, and combines innovative banking technology with 100 games to make it fun for kids to learn.

Co-founders Scott and Travis have raised a $5.2 million seed round led by Altrus Capital and a pool of private investors to launch this upcoming app.

We are incredibly proud to share some of our investors, who are all parents and range from accomplished authors to entrepreneurs.
