Meeting logoAbout Alan Chen ('17):
Hello! My name is Alan and I'm an alumnus of Macaulay Honors College at Baruch College. You would think after attending business school, I would know how to manage my personal finances. Unfortunately financial literacy is not a skill taught in schools. I come from a low-income family and have seen firsthand the negative effects of poor money management and not saving early enough for retirement. My goal is to help people retire happily. By day, I write code as a software engineer; by night, I study financial literacy. I am very interested in technology startups. Right now, I'm working on a FinTech startup that I believe will change the world.
