Our mission is to develop a community of people who try to make financially sound decisions. The website strives to educate individuals in making wise choices about credit and debt, investing, education, real estate, insurance, spending, and more.
We live in a world where information is easily-accesible and abundant but that’s making it more and more difficult to determine who and what to trust each day. Reputable financial-related information can also be not only difficult to find but difficult to understand as well. We’ve set out on a mission to deliver only accurate, trustworthy news so that you can make an informed decision about topics that may impact you for decades to come.
The landscape of news delivery has changed. People are reading the news in the morning with their morning coffee, during their morning commute, while they wait for their kids to get out of school, and even during yoga class. Money Crashers is focused on bringing our financial stories to wherever you are. No matter how fast technology changes, we will always be one step ahead so you can focus on creating the financial life you’ve always dreamed of. Namaste.
We created Money Crashers because we love what we do. We know that our best work comes from when we align our interests with the interests of our users. We get excited when our users get excited. If the site were a house we built, you’re invited to come over any time you want. We are a small team of financially conscious people that care and take responsibility for the content we create and we take it very seriously. Welcome home.
Andrew Schrage is co-founder and CEO of Money Crashers. After graduating college, he began work at a Chicago-based hedge fund. He soon realized that instead of serving the wealthy, he needed to address the void in our financial education system. He began working on Money Crashers with the mission to help kids, adults, and families get on the right financial path through freely-accessible online content. A passionate cheerleader for financial education, he has been interviewed by top TV outlets including MSNBC, CBS News, NBC News, and Fox News. He has also been featured in top publications including Forbes and US News & World Report. In his free time, he loves to play ice hockey and tennis, and he enjoys meditating as well.

Gyutae Park is co-founder and CTO of Money Crashers. With the advent of the Information Age, he was fascinated with the Internet at a young age and built and tinkered with various websites. He started his career as a strategist at a top digital marketing agency in New York City, consulting large global companies such as Boehringer Ingelheim, SAP, and Nokia on expanding their online presences. It’s here that Gyutae grew his passion for business, finance, and technology, and how they intersect. In 2009, after seeing a lack of financial education in young people, even in himself, he started Money Crashers with the aim of helping people find the resources they need to make smart financial decisions and be good stewards of money. In his spare time, he enjoys finding deals and playing the drums. Gyutae has a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University.
