The financial industry is broken. It pitches us products we don't need, makes things sound more complicated than they are, and earns money even when it's users don't.
We're here to change that.
Somehow, our schooling doesn’t really prepare us to be masters of finance. Many of us hack together our financial education with advice from our parents (warranted or not), our friends or Google searches. Worst, nearly 65% of divorces are attributed (at least in part) to money.
At Zeta, we believe that mastering your money is a core skill for every relationship. Using a combination of technology and advice, we want to help 19 million American couples get ahead of their finances. From planning for your first paycheck to paying for college debt, saving for your first house to prepping for child #1, Zeta’s mission is to help couples get smarter about money and have more successful relationships.

Founder & CEO
Sam is a driven UX designer with a passion for creating big data products. In his 10 years of experience, Sam has focused most of his efforts towards digital finance. After years of designing for institutional finance, he finally found his way to personal finance where he is flourishing with Zeta. Sam’s goal is to make Zeta’s user experience not just usable, but incredibly delightful.
Despite designing for money, Sam was never a master at managing his own money. These challenges became amplified in relationships, and this is why the Zeta mission so profoundly affects Sam. He is the end user! Full-Stack Designer? No, Full-Circle Designer.

Aditi has been obsessing about personal finance ever since she got her first paycheck. After spending years working with young professionals, she was surprised at the lack of financial support they had access to. Moreover, she was frustrated by her own experience in trying to merge her finances with her significant other. To solve both these problems, Aditi launched Zeta.
Aditi has spent 12+ years at the ground floor of two venture-backed startups (General Assembly, Guild Education) and served as Executive Director in the world's leading social entrepreneurship organization (Ashoka). She's also been featured in Forbes and Harvard Business Review. Aditi has a BS/BA in Business and Psychology from UNC Chapel Hill.

Along the way, Kevin was often unsure of how to best handle his finances, especially during a serious relationship, turned engagement, turned marriage. Kevin is in love with the idea of helping couples learn how to do things better, enriching their relationships in the process.
