The provides the easiest way for couples to share expenses.
Tandem, the fintech app for modern couples, is reshaping the landscape of shared finances. Co-founders Michelle Winterfield and Daniel Couvreur, both finance professionals, recognized the challenges faced by unmarried couples in combining their financial lives. With the increasing trend of couples marrying later, there's a reluctance to fully merge finances, yet a desire to reap the benefits. Tandem, launched in August 2023, simplifies shared expenses, allowing couples to plan, save, and spend together without the need for a joint account. The subscription-based app has garnered over 25,000 users, managing $60 million in expenses, and recently secured $3.7 million in funding.
Tandem's user-friendly setup involves connecting credit and debit cards, offering a shared expense pot for automated money transfers, eliminating the need for a joint account. The platform's unique feature, "Goals," allows couples to collaboratively plan and save for shared purchases, ensuring financial alignment. Investors, including Corazon Capital, recognize Tandem is addressing the unique challenges faced by couples managing their finances. While competitors often focus on providing shared debit cards, Tandem prioritizes an automated, consumer-centric experience, continually evolving with user input. With the newly injected capital, Tandem is set to launch the "Goals" feature, expand marketing efforts, and introduce an Android app, reaffirming its commitment to revolutionizing how couples navigate financial independence within their relationships.
