FINANCIAL EDUCATION FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
Ugrow is a teaching programme for young people below 30 years.
We teach how to obtain a durable and realistic personal finance.
The teaching programme is free of charge, impartial, and entertaining. Ugrow is funded by sponsorships and investors; however, they do not have any influence on the contents of the teaching programme.
The teaching programme is targeted at education institutions.
We believe that there is a lack of a serious and thorough introduction to financial education for young adults.
Young adults get in contact with financial advisors relatively late and often at the earliest in connection with loans for housing. In the meantime they might rush into obtaining for example consumer loans with very high interest rates because they are unaware of the economic consequences of such loans.
Ugrow introduces financial insight as a part of the basic training in order to equip young people to make rational decisions in regard to both their personal finance and in the housing market.
Ugrow is a financial teaching programme of high quality and is taught by skilled instructors with experience from the financial sector.
We do not sell financial products and we do not wear clothes with sponsor logos. However, we do tell who selflessly invests in the young people and hence, the future of Denmark.
An investment in Ugrow benefits your company’s CSR profile and signals social responsibility.
As a sponsor or investor in Ugrow you and your company take responsibility for young people obtaining a healthy and realistic relationship to their personal finances and knowledge of the housing market.
