Having lunch with Min is an amazing experience!
First you are delighted to see all the great drawings on the window of the Playmoolah offices. Than you are surprised by all the feminine smiles welcoming you in this advanced tech startup all about finance. And finally you experience a fantastic Singaporean dish where all the corporate workers stop to have lunch.
And then, it is all set for Min to tell you her story. How she grew up trying to be the best like all the other kids in Singapore, how she saw her mentor commit suicide when she was 14 because the young and promising girl could not handle the pressure, how she participated in a great program about how to apply the entrepreneurship mindset to life, how she left to the US and faced the results of the financial crises, how she decided to contribute and innovate by creating Playmoolah with her co-founder.
They educate children, young people and their families to deal with money. They deliver workshops in schools, they develop tools and games for the awareness and the community to grow, they question the value of things to better question the values. More than teaching about finances, they inspire people to take action and to form new communities. Their Honesty Circles enable people to talk about money freely and to develop.
A program not to miss if you wonder about what the curriculum of the 21st century should look like!
