Ilian Georgiev co-founded Charlie in 2016 to help Americans manage their debt while still living their lives freely. Operating as its CEO, Georgiev builds delightful experiences that nudge app users to better understand their spending habits. Prior to Charlie, Georgiev worked as a product manager in mobile gaming where he launched and scaled multiple top-grossing games that generated more than $100 million in revenue. Georgiev learned the importance of personal finance first-hand, growing up in Bulgaria when the country transitioned from a socialist-planned economy to a market democracy. Georgiev earned an undergraduate degree from Vassar College, graduating with General Honors and Honors in Mathematics and Economics, and holds an M.B.A. from Stanford.
Our vision at Charlie has always been to build an AI that brings empathy, simplicity, and financial empowerment to anyone looking for help with their money. With this capital, we’re looking forward to developing new ways to help even more people form healthy financial habits. We want people to know that Charlie is there to always look out for their spending and goals, so they can focus on the more important things in life.12 December 2020
