Frich Money, headquartered in New York, aims to help credit unions attract and retain younger members. The fintech has been selected to be a part of Michigan State University Research Foundation’s Conquer Finance and Insurance Accelerator, supported by MSUFCU, along with other Michigan-based finance and insurance start-ups.

Launched in 2021, Frich Money provides a financial wellness app designed to help Gen Z users make informed decisions about money quickly and confidently.

MSUFCU sees Frich Money as a solution to bridge the “awareness gap” between Gen Z and credit unions. MSU Federal Credit Union CIO Benjamin Maxim points out that attracting younger members is crucial for the survival of credit unions, as only 4% of Gen Z currently utilize credit unions. Both enterprises share the ambition to increase Gen Z participation in the financial space as they progress through their life stages, with a predicted combined $10 trillion in deposits from the demographic by 2030.
