Sticitt is more than just a company. It says so on our wall, but every person driving it will also tell you that. And I don’t just mean our employees, ask our school champions, our super parents or our student ambassadors and the message remains the same. Sticitt is a passion project, one we believe will change the world for the better. So what is this project that we are all so passionate about you may ask? Well, let me tell you.
Sticitt is a payments company in its foundation, but one that spends all its time and energy in the education space. In a world where competitors chase transaction flows wherever they may come, we like to focus. Our focus is on the schools, colleges and universities that we all believe will deliver the next generation of talented students entrusted with our future. By focusing, we get to listen to our institutions, partner with them and bend the world of payments to help them succeed in their critical task. Hundreds of institutions have already joined hands with us on this goal.
Our passion doesn’t stop there, however, by processing all payments occurring in and around our institutions we become the first point of contact for thousands of learners interacting with money for the first time. We believe this provides us with the opportunity, the responsibility and the privilege to shape the way these learners will interact with money for the rest of their lives. We believe that by teaching the core of financial literacy as part of their interaction with our payment systems we can counter the drive towards reckless consumption and lending that the current industry leaders are promoting.
It is our goal to empower these children to be successful in managing their financial affairs. If we can equip them with the tools and skills they need, we can see a money-enabled generation, reversing the destruction caused by wanton debt-fueled consumerism and building the future we all aspire to with the greatest passion.
