BALTIMORE, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Two young Baltimore startups have come together in an effort to drive young adults toward financial literacy and financially secure futures. Together, OnTrajectory, a visual financial modeling tool, and Ortus Academy, a learning-game edtech company, are carving new paths for young students in and out of the city.
Ortus Academy's financial literacy lessons, which already reach hundreds of students, will soon help students fully visualize their future monetary decisions in real-time – seeing if they've learned to better their lives or create massive amounts of future debt.
OnTrajectory's financial planning tool will help provide a visual component and build-out a unique platform allowing Ortus Academy's NumisMatters game components to be represented as visual outputs during classroom lessons.
Ortus Academy is connected with schools, universities and programs throughout the Greater-Baltimore-Washington region, and hopes to bring this special mix of tools and insights to their audiences as they grow.
OnTrajectory alone is a powerful platform helping individuals and families see the impact of long-term financial decisions, but together with Ortus Academy, the positive educational impact can happen earlier, faster and more intensely than ever.
Ortus Academy will involve the founder of OnTrajectory directly in their youth programming, to further the reach youth services, and to demonstrate how two different local companies – when they come together – can have a real affect on the financial well-being of future generations.
Ortus Academy is a Baltimore-based Non-Profit whose mission is to teach our youth about making smart financial decisions through experience – playing games, telling stories, and asking questions – to build a future with a healthy relationship to money.
Together, as young start-ups, these companies have the ability to cross-support young audiences around the area and to be a win/win both to education but to the local business community as well.
