Activehours is Becoming Earnin

Nov 9, 2017 · 1 min read

Just a couple of years ago we launched Activehours to solve a basic problem for people — the cash crunch — in a new way. We believed there was a community of people willing to come together, to support one another in getting through the crunch, without resorting to paying overdraft fees or high interest rates.

Today, people from over 25,000 employers use our app to manage their pay. It’s tremendously inspiring to see people come together to help each other stay out of bad financial products. Financial services and good karma can co-exist.

We’ve grown up a lot in the past four years. So today, we’re changing our name to Earnin. We think our new name is easy to remember and clearly connected to the reward you get from working.

What else has changed, other than our name, logo, app and website? Absolutely nothing. We’re as committed as ever to making money work better for everyone, and we’re excited to continue that journey with you, our community of users.

On behalf of all of us at Earnin, thank you for being a part of our community.
