Oops is a Spending Awareness App.


Everyone spends money, but only a few people know how they spend their money. We believe this is wrong.

Most people lack financial consciousness because it is too painful to take agency over. Personal finance tools today are filled with scary graphs and words. 

Our mission is to enable everyone with financial consciousness.

Where are we, and where are we going?

We are a team of 4 working from our office in New York City. 

We have a product in the wild and strong retention.

We just closed our Seed round from a group of prominent investors.

We spend most of our awake time reimagining how the young generation will do personal finance.
