Who are you?

We are Tristan & Jan, the founders of HIGH FIVE. We met in 2011 while studying economics in Berlin and share a mission to give more people access to financial education.

We believe that financial and investment knowledge should be accessible, personal, and trustworthy. To achieve this, Tristan researched behavioural economics in his master's and then built user journeys as a data analyst for Scout24. Jan analysed investor behaviour for the Dutch Central Bank and then was himself a startup investor for Berlin and London funds.

Our goal is to provide financial education to as many people as possible so that they can make informed decisions about their money. If you're interested in learning more about finance and investing, we hope you'll join us on this journey.

How do you make money?

At the moment, we are in the development phase of the app. We are funded by the EXIST Founder Grant from the European Social Fund (ESF) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection. The app will be supported by a so-called freemium model, in which basic content is available for free and additional content can be purchased via a monthly fee or in-app purchases.

What do you do with my data?

We use your data to provide you with information and learning content that's right for you, and we don't sell it to anyone else. In the app, you can choose what data you want to share with us.

What drives you?

We believe that everyone should have access to the trustworthy financial information that is relevant to their personal situation. Our app is designed to make this possible, and in doing so, empower people to make informed decisions about their money. Financial literacy is critical for shaping the world of tomorrow, and we aim to educate our users about this important topic.

When can I use the app?

We are developing a prototype for the HIGH FIVE app which will be available for iOS and Android next year. Meanwhile, our weekly newsletter will provide you with the latest and most interesting financial information. You can sign up by joining our waitlist below.

Have you invested yourselves?

We invest in stocks, ETFs and mutual funds for our private retirement plans. Still, the information we provide is not influenced by this. We aim to deliver the best possible information about finances and investments so that our users can take their finances into their own hands.

HIGH FIVE is a mobile learning platform where you can learn, inform and exchange ideas with a community of like-minded people to help you reach your financial goals. HIGH FIVE provides personalised guidance and increases your financial agency.
