Conversation During Quarantine #64 (En) | Philip Barrar
Build your business from day 1 to be able to work from home. Depending on what you are doing working from home isn’t an option anymore. We understand now that you can work from home and still be productive. Technology companies have understood that this is the new norm. I still believe that some industry would be slow to adapt to that trend and for sure others won’t be able to do it. Either way, during these times, most business owners have understood that to survive and even thrive change is mandatory. Great talk with Philip Barrar founder of the Mylo app. Mylo is a financial app that rounds up your daily purchases and invest the spare change.

Welcome to Le Wagon Live, today we are listening to Philipp Barrar, CEO & Founder at Mylo. Philipp is on a mission to help Canadians achieve their financial goals through an app that rounds up your purchases and invests the spare change. He was named one of the Bay Street Bull’s 30 under 30 for 2018. In this talk, he gave us useful tips on fundraising namely how to build strong relationships with investors. A year after he launched Mylo, Phil and his team had already raised $3.9M and acquired an asset management firm with $120M in AUM. Mylo also scored a deal on CBC’s Dragons’ Den and the company is frequently featured in major Canadian media, including BNN, CBC, The Financial Post, Global, and The Globe and Mail.Podcast and music production: yoann.saunier.me See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Financial literacy and personal finance are topics that are widely covered today. Blogs, magazines, and books are quick to offer tips, tricks and lessons to improve your finances. Philip Barrar, however, realized that what Canadians really need is a tangible solution. He conceptualized Mylo, an app that rounds up your everyday purchases and invests the difference. He embarked on the long journey to build the app which included plenty of venture backing, getting around regulations, and even an appearance on Dragon’s Den.
