The KokoTālā App: Planning for a Brighter Future

KokoTālā is a tech start-up based in Mangere, Auckland. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for people to change their spending habits and financial behaviours and to empower them to dream big through saving and investing. We believe that the small changes we make every day create tiny gains that in turn create significant and positive financial effects over time. Users will be able to set a daily spending target, and save and connect with their family and friends, or even larger groups like a community or village.
