Brian and Myles met freshman year of high school & became friends talking about stocks. Over time, they realized that ordinary investors have paid a price to learn to invest; and that price typically was real money ending up in Wall Street’s pocket. Rapunzl was founded to provide an unparalleled investing education through fun (and free) investment competitions with scholarship and cash prizes.

why rapunzl?
Why Rapunzl?
People often view the world of finance & high-returns of Wall Street as trapped in an Ivory Tower - inaccessible and out of reach for most.

We watch movies about Wall Street which idolize the complex jobs of bankers and this creates a fear that deters many from taking charge of their financial futures.

Rapunzl’s free competitions provide everyone with an opportunity to learn how to invest; and by doing so, we are rolling down the hair which allows everyone to climb to financial success.

Because the stock market is made up of thousands of companies we purchase from everyday. And if we understand enough about a company to buy their product, we deserve to understand enough about investing to share in that company’s growth.
