AI-powered banking app with patent-pending autopilot to automate saving, budgeting, and investments.
Envel is targeting a $50+ billion market, approximately 63 million underserved, primarily between the ages of 18 and 35.
25,000+ users, launched Q1 2021, community-led, founded at Harvard, pre-seed funding from MIT Sandbox program.
Envel is pushing the Envelope on banking services
Envel is a Harvard-founded financial technology company that leverages AI and behavioral science to optimize people’s finances in real-time and automate their budgeting, savings, and investments. Funded by the MIT Sandbox Program, angel investors, and crowdfunding, we are on a mission to make banking and investing easier and more simple for tens of millions of people.
The bank account as we all know it has remained unchanged for decades, and is a little well, manual and unhelpful, so Envel has reinvented banking from the ground up to give you many of the features you’ve always wanted and finally make it work hard for you!
Save and budget on Autopilot
We've built a one-stop Autonomous banking app with Autopilot to organize your money automatically for you with little effort, no calculators, no spreadsheet, it just works.. powered by our patent-pending AI. All built upon an Envelope system so you can organize your money in up to 99 FDIC insured Envel bank accounts (FDIC insurance is through nbkc bank, Member FDIC) we call Envelopes, which you can create in seconds.
We believe that the consumer banking system is broken and no longer focuses on serving its customers' financial health. Traditional banks profit from charging lots of fees and getting you indebted and don’t offer you the freedom or advice to help organize and manage your money in a way that helps you.
We have engineered some incredible patent-pending features never seen before in banking to help you become financially fit and achieve your financial goals and dreams.
Our impressive board and team of data scientists, technologists, and bankers aim to revolutionize digital banking using artificial intelligence, behavioral science and a unique approach to community engagement, user experience, partnerships and design.
Fractional Investments on Autopilot
Over 55% of Americans want to invest but aren’t taking the first simple step to grow their wealth by saving properly and investing.
Launching soon, we’re utilizing our automation to buy stocks for you automatically from your favorite brands without the hassle!
We Have Protected Our Unique IP
From our inception we have been working closely with MIT and leading patent experts to ensure we protect our unique IP, the "Envel Magic" that makes our autonomous banking possible. Our patent-pending technology covers 153 countries under invention "System and Method for Autonomous, Intelligent, and Tunable Compartmentalization of Monetary Transactions" US20210073909A1. We will continue to disrupt and innovate traditional banking and payments to make banking better for you and we will continue to protect and patent our unique IP!
With this raise, we are working toward launching customer acquisition and marketing, rolling out 3 new products and services, enhancing our AI data science capabilities, onboarding new product partners, and expanding our tech, compliance, and operations teams.
The majority of Americans do not have the time, skills or discipline to manage their money properly, and struggle with budgeting, saving, and investing
Did you know that a staggering 63% of employees in the United States are living paycheck to paycheck? In addition, 84% of Millennials are not financially literate. People need help budgeting, saving, and building their wealth, and that’s where Envel comes in.
We understand that budgeting takes discipline and banks don’t help, which is why Envel provides real-time financial guidance so that you can take back time and live your life!
Digital banking is a fast-growing multibillion-dollar market
Digital banks are growing rapidly in the United States, taking a share of primary customers from traditional banks. Envel is looking at a +$50 billion market opportunity, made up of about 63 million underserved adults, between the ages of 18 and 35.
Envel is uniquely designed to solve and automate the budgeting, money management, savings, and wealth creation challenges faced by most people. We partner with our bank of record, which is where our users’ funds are held, and unlike other banks, we do not charge any monthly fees or service fees, nor do we require a minimum amount in order to use our services. Setting up an account with us is fast and easy, and puts our users on the path to an easier, more efficient banking experience!
Autonomous banking that does all the heavy lifting for you
Envel’s patent-pending, autonomous banking app has an Autopilot function that organizes and automates users’ money, budgets, and savings. Our digital envelope system uses artificial intelligence to understand people’s individual behaviors, needs, and goals and creates a personalized budget to guide their daily, weekly, or monthly spending habits. Envel reviews users’ spending patterns and organizes their money (FDIC insurance is through nbkc bank, Member FDIC) accounts. We allow our users to calibrate their settings, so they can spend more or less money when they want to.
Say goodbye to overspending. Envel's real-time machine learning tracks, flags and alerts you if recurring transactions are projected to be too high relative to your income.
Unlike traditional banks that often charge consumers lots of hidden fees, we make most our of money from “interchange”, or fees that vendors or merchants pay when they take payments via credit or debit cards. We also earn interest income from deposits with our banking partners. We will charge for expedited services and added value services. Envel is also about to launch its premium service which will include additional custom card options, priority customer service, and expedited shipping and transactions. We also plan to charge a monthly subscription fee for our fractional investments and crypto products.
Envel has an established strong base of enthusiastic users!
Many of our users are active on the Envel Community Forums as well as public community forums such as Discord and Reddit. The Envel team has regular meetings and daily discussions with all of these users in order to obtain their feedback and improve the app.
In October of 2020, our first live beta mobile application appeared in app stores and we were openly marketed in January of 2021. This past summer, the total cash of our users exceeded $2 million and over 25,000 confirmed users. Additionally, our Envel Referral Program has shown great success in testing, which will drive huge user growth at very low costs. We have a high app store rating (above 4.5) including many 5 star ratings and positive reviews from our users!
Our investors raised $6 million through September of 2021 and we have received media attention from Bloomberg, Yahoo! Finance, Nasdaq, The Harvard Crimson, Fintech Futures, Digital Journal and many others.
With a world-class team, Envel has already achieved major traction since its recent inception--but this is only just the beginning!
Our 5-year goal is to revolutionize the banking space. We expect to take a large share of the Gen Z, Millennial and middle markets and gather a significant share of the under-banked within the US and eventually, around the world. Envel has plans to launch a number of significant innovative features in 2022 and 2023, to create a full financial ecosystem which will expedite user acceptance and growth.
With some of the world’s best engineers and banking experts working night and day to achieve these goals, Envel is confident in its ability to succeed. With very little marketing we have over 12,000 active users since going live this year, and are very excited to see how our user numbers grow when we fully launch our referral program and accelerate our digital marketing, positioning us to become a highly regarded banking app and an innovation leader in the space. We see a bright future for digital banking and believe that we will be able to help millions of users improve their financial fitness. We hope you’ll join us and be a part of our journey, both as an investor and as a user of our services.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
