CONNECT

Ben Knelman
CEO and Co-Founder

Juntos provides financial institutions and mobile network operators with a mobile-based conversation platform that serves as a bridge from financial access to true financial inclusion. Based in Silicon Valley, Juntos was founded in 2010 by students at the Stanford d.school. Their mission was to design tools that empower newly banked consumers around the world to build confidence in their financial lives.

Betting on the power of behavior change and user-centric design, Juntos delivers high-touch, engaging conversations via SMS to build trust, comfort, and confidence among consumers who have joined the formal financial system for the first time.

The company engages with these new entrants through partnerships with financial services providers. They aim to increase account activity, boost deposits and savings, and create a stronger foundation for long-lasting financial security.
