I learned so much practical knowledge about investing that I am going to implement in my own life. I enjoyed the engaging presentation that broke down complicated topics into more simple concepts. Thank you to the whole FinMango team for hosting the event! I will definitely be sharing this resource with my fellow graduate student friends.

Living in a small community, I've already received wonderful, heartfelt feedback from parents as well as grandparents about their student's experience with FinMango. I have no doubt that my students will continue to learn about investing on their own, knowing the importance and impact early investing can have on their lives.
Going in I was a student who never really thought about investing and didn’t really know what a stock was and coming out of the class, I probably know more than most adults… which I think is really amazing.
Mango Bob was by far the most interesting speaker on a topic people often times avoid and hate talking about. He educates you on topics that you think you know but you really don't, and helps you notice things that have been hidden in plain sight! This program is not just for high schoolers but even a 5th grader has the ability to understand it.
