Jennifer Shoop, Chief Innovation Officer, Moneythink

Moneythink was a case study for the challenge teams. We're very excited that Jennifer has agreed to speak about how Moneythink used human centered design to create a mobile app to support its mission.  What does Moneythink do?  It is a movement of young people working to restore the economic health of the United States through financial education. Financial education can mean the difference between a dream achieved or a dream deferred.
