Transparency & accountability are critical
There hasn’t been enough of it in business. We’re here to prove we can do well by doing good.
We’re on a mission to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. We aim to empower our generation with the information and resources to make confident decisions with their time and hard-earned money.
Step 1: Inform - Make it easier to understand our power in the economy, our role in the financial world, and how corporations impact our lives, our communities, and our planet
Step 2: Encourage opinions - Get more people over the psychological barrier that “this stuff isn’t for me”
Step 3: Create a feedback loop - Get companies to listen to those opinions, increase their transparency, and engage with their stakeholders
Step 4: Flourish - Build an economy where companies earn business through strong values and transparency
Step 5: Prove the power of purpose - Demonstrate that you can build a successful company that prioritizes public benefit, transparency, and accountability
The financial world should not be this inaccessible. The decisions of policymakers and corporate executives impact all of our lives every single day, but most of us hear little about it. If we do, the information is delivered in a way that makes it impossible to understand.
We built this platform on the principle that our generation can’t afford to be passive participants in the economy any longer. We must understand the bigger picture and direct our time and our money where it benefits us. Businesses can no longer operate blind to the way they impact their workers, their communities, and our planet.
Our founder comes from a small-town, blue collar family that understands financial insecurity, but was fortunate to earn his way into some of the most exclusive rooms in the financial world, trusted to oversee billion-dollar portfolios for the biggest clients at the biggest bank on Wall Street at a young age. His path gave him a broader perspective and passion for a more accessible financial system.
We must break from a system of abuse and take control of our own decisions and our future. It’s time for our generation to have a voice and a share in this economy.
You deserve to have control over your future, and not let your fate be determined by the boardrooms, policymakers, and manipulative marketing.
Learn how to improve your life, your future, and the world around you with your voice and your dollars.

Transparency and accountability. When our users asked for recommended services to take control of their finances, we chose our favorites after reviewing dozens of platforms, then set out to get paid for the traffic we would provide. For Scoops Direct, our goal is to have every company posting and engaging with our community on our platform directly, taking us out of the middle. Within our app, we’re awarding governance votes to our most active users. Our community will have a voice in our business decisions. If you have any concerns, our door is open!
We do it through a dedication to transparency and accountability, while continually decreasing any primary content creation that could be open to subconscious influence. We source the content on our platform from a broad set of perspectives to provide a holistic picture:
Daily economic context: We’ll keep providing this. Our value is in context and curation.
Financial education content: We’ll keep refreshing our core curriculum as needed, but we’re excited to build out our library with other amazing thought leaders. If you’re someone who loves to educate and knows what you’re talking about (but might not have figured out how to go viral yet), reach out to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
Daily Company Scoops: We’re using AI to curate stories on every public company. We look forward to curating more journalists who write their own scoops. If you’re a journalist passionate about corporate accountability, reach out to the email@example.com.
Corporate Direct Scoops: The bulk of the information about what’s happening with companies has to come from the companies themselves. We’re using our user momentum to show companies how valuable it is to listen to what our community has to say, and how they can earn more business through a commitment to transparency.
Corporate Data: The data you see on every Company Profile is sourced from third-party data providers, like our partner Ethos ESG, aggregated from a range of NGO’s, government agencies, and corporations themselves. We only add broad context in our interface to help you understand the data, with no control over the actual data or influence in its presentation across individual companies.
Your opinions: The most important information on this platform is your votes. We’re here to inform and empower a generation to use your voices and dollars to influence the future you want to see. We add no influence on the ratings. It’s simple math where every vote counts!
