In a world where finance stays an intimidating and complex topic for most, there exists a beacon of hope, a young and determined female entrepreneur, Kashvi Jindal. Her story is one of an insatiable curiosity for all things financial, and an unwavering determination to turn her fascination into a force for good. From discussing hedge funds to the humblest conversations with household staff, Kashvi’s journey is an inspiring one through the corridors of finance, illuminated by the mission to empower those who often exist in its shadow.

Ever since she was a child, the world of finance has captivated Kashvi Jindal. Growing up with a father who founded a hedge fund, she was exposed to countless discussions about business and market trends. Even as a child, she could be found eagerly asking questions about finance, despite not fully grasping the concepts. This early fascination with finance became the guiding star that led Kashvi to enroll in an AP Micro and Macroeconomics course during her tenth grade.

As Kashvi’s interest in money management grew, she began engaging in conversations about financial matters with people from various walks of life and household staff like housemaids and cleaning workers at her school. Through these conversations, Kashvi became acutely aware of a pressing societal issue — the lack of accessible information about finance and the economy. It was during these exchanges that her passion to make a positive impact was ignited.

This spark of inspiration led Kashvi to launch Invest The Change at the tender age of 16. This platform aimed to provide individuals with a fundamental understanding of saving and investing.
