A few years ago, my mom and I were trying to plan a trip together. Opening a savings account was a hassle – we lived in different cities, I spent hours in lines, and, once we almost had an account, we were told we’d have to keep an account minimum or else pay $12 per month.

Frustrated, I decided to make TravelFund, an extremely easy online savings account that will make saving for travel almost as enjoyable as the trips you’ll take.

My goal is to launch by Summer 2014, just in time to start saving to escape the brutal polar vortexes that are sure to haunt us again next winter.

Happy funding,
