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. Worse, nearly 65% of divorces are attributed (at least in part) to money.
At Zeta, we believe that mastering your money together is a core skill for every relationship. Using a combination of technology, support and advice, we want to help 130 million American families 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 and families thrive.

Meet Our Team
Aditi has been obsessing about personal finance ever since she got her first paycheck. After spending years working alongside young colleagues, she was surprised at the lack of financial support they had. At the same time, she was frustrated by her own experience in trying to combine 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 at Ashoka, a leading social entrepreneurship organization. She's also a family finance expert at publications like Refinery29, Business Insider & Real Simple. Aditi has a BS/BA in Business & Psychology from UNC Chapel Hill.
Founder & CEO
Kevin is passionate about building technology and solving problems that enable people to better their lives. During his 10+ years in tech, he's launched a development agency, worked at multiple venture-backed startups (General Assembly, EdSurge, YouEarnedIt) and worked as a software consultant. He's a senior level engineer, full-stack aficionado (yes, even the infrastructure side), engineering manager, coach, and early-stage product engineer.
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.
