Not many people realize - and oftentimes look at us quizzically - when we tell them that we’re headquartered in Elizabeth, NJ. Why Elizabeth? Well, besides getting started there with our tax business, it does two very important things for us:
- It’s a short train ride away to NYC, still regarded as the financial capital of the world and great for a fintech startup like us; and
- Keeps us close to our customers (Elizabeth has one of the highest underbanked and low-income rates in the state)
Newark, Elizabeth’s neighbor, is no different. Which is why we’re excited and honored to present at BrickCity Tech May Meetup. Hoboken and Jersey City aside, we sometimes think that Newark could be the next big thing in tech for NJ.
It’s got great infrastructure and transportation options, great press from Mayor Cory Booker and Mark Zuckerberg, great universities and restaurants, has its own airport and is super close to NYC, and, more generally, is undergoing a slow but steady renaissance.
With all these great things and new real estate developments emanating from around Newark Penn Station, Newark seems an ideal spot to grow a technology hub. So, we’d like to be a part of it and participate with the community.
If you’re in the area, stop by and say hello. If you’re not, it’s changed A LOT and you should still stop by :).
The Refundo team will be there in full force, and we’ll be presenting our latest innovation: a Refundo mobile app that connects millions of financially underserved to the U.S. financial system.
It’s a big and important problem that we’re trying to tackle, and we would love to earn your support. Ask us questions, take it for a test drive, sign up and spread the word! Click here for details on registering for the event.
Thanks and see you soon!
