Jason Young, an African-American founder and CEO of Mindblown Labs, an Oakland, CA based education technology start-up, knows first-hand how financial literacy or lack thereof can impact the African-American community.
Through his own personal experiences he learned very quickly that financial literacy is essential for everyone so he created a mobile app called Mindblown Life.
Mindblown Life is a mobile, social game that combines life-simulation elements and edgy humor to help young adults develop money management and financial literacy skills.
The game uses Facebook integration and push notifications to create a rich, in-game life filled with meaningful social experiences: in Mindblown Life, you can attend your friendsâ concerts, take them on a dinner date, play mini-games with them, or crash on their couches, if you’re having a particularly rough month. Random events make sure that your Mindblown Life reflects the spontaneity of your real one.
