Today was a HUGE day for Betterment.  We officially launched our product on stage as a Battlefield Finalist at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in New York, NY.  Only a handful of companies from a pool of over 500 applicants were selected to present on the “Battlefield” stage in front of a panel of technology industry experts to see who has the best startup idea.  It was nerve-racking, but we made it through the first two rounds of competition today.  On Wednesday we will find out if we made it to the final round of competition.

We would sincerely like to thank TechCrunch for inviting us to launch our product at the conference–the exposure is invaluable for us as we try to help everyone save and invest better.

We also want to thank all of the customers who have been signing up now that our doors are open for business.  Above all else, we want to make sure you have a spectacular customer experience and never even consider going back to your old bank savings account.  If you like your Betterment account, tell a friend because there’s a good chance they will like it too.  If you run into any issues with your account, let us know and we will make it right.  It’s that simple.

Betterment’s Model for Financial Advice: An Overview

Achieving your financial goals is only possible if you plan effectively. Saving enough, choosing the right accounts, deciding when you can buy a house or when to retire—all of these are essential decisions even before you build an optimal portfolio.

Explore your first goal

Safety Net

This is a great place to start—an emergency fund for life's unplanned hiccups. A safety net is a conservative portfolio.

Retirement

Whether it's a long way off or just around the corner, we'll help you save for the retirement you deserve.

General Investing

If you want to invest and build wealth over time, then this is the goal for you. This is an excellent goal type for unknown future needs or money you plan to pass to future generations.

Smart Saver

You could earn 20X more than a typical savings account with our low-risk investing account for your extra cash.
