Mission

Creating financial opportunity that advances America’s collective potential.

Founding Story

Dave is the finance version of David vs. Goliath. Three friends were fed up with their banking experience, often incurring $38 overdraft fees and never having insights into how much money was left before payday.

With customer loyalty at big banks at an all time low, they figured building the next great financial institution, one that could service 99% of Americans, not just the 1%, was the right idea for the times.

Instead of building a bank right away, they started with solving for simple pain points like overdraft protection and automated budgeting to amass millions of loyal members.

Today, Dave has reinvented many other areas of finance, from no-interest cash advances, income creation, un-bounceable checks and more to truly take on goliath.

Outsmart overdrafts

Our first product helps you outsmart overdrafts because we think it's fundamentally wrong to kick people when they're down. A coffee should never end up costing you $38 after bank fees.

Banks make billions.

Americans paid up to $34B in overdraft fees to big banks in 2020.

1 in 4 overdraft.

More than 25% of Americans overdrafted in the past 12 months. And 10% have overdrafted more than 8x.

17,000% APR.

This is the typical interest rate associated with overdraft fees.
