Focused. Curious. Impactful. Meet our Team.

We founded Strum Platform with the dream of unlocking smarter consumer data insights that could enrich people’s lives and create greater inclusion to financial services for more people and businesses.  

From our work in financial marketing and data-driven strategies, we knew financial leaders were hungry for innovation in marketing technology. To crack the code to bigger impacts. To better understand people's unique needs - and personalize solutions to optimize their journeys. And to deliver simpler brand experiences that would measurably grow people’s financial wellbeing.
