The Jassby vision is to become the Mobile banking & commerce App for the next generation family. Our mission everyday is to help parents teach their kids about money through hands-on experience.
Kids and teens today have more free money than ever before. The average teen in the US spend some $3,000 per year. However, parents still mostly use cash to transact with their kids, and most of us never talk or teach about money, nor do most schools.
Kids spend money the way they prefer to do everything these days - on their phones! Jassby fits right in. For the parents, Jassby allows them to guide their kids on the path to make smart money choices by providing visibility and control - teach by real life experiences.
Jassby provides a Financial Wellness Plan for the kids and the whole family to start thinking and working with money as early as possible.
- Mobile Wallet - 3 savings accounts including 1.) Spend, money kids can spend 2.) Save, a savings account, and 3.) Share, savings for charities
- Mobile Payments - Kids can purchase online or anywhere Apple Pay is accepted with our Virtual Debit Card
- Savings Goals & Planning - Help kids plan for future purchases, savings and fundraising goals
- Chores & Allowance - Parents can set chores and weekly allowance for their kids
- Mobile Commerce - The Jassby Mall is a curated shop of thousands of unique and name brand products from Apple, Nintendo, & more
What makes us special:
- Financial Wellness Plan - Get your kids started on the right path toward making smart money choices
- Mobile Payments First - Jassby is being built as a mobile app first, not a debit card that has an app
- Focus on Real Money Smarts - Our mission of hands on experience is the core of the service, not just a positioning statement
- No Monthly Fees - Many top “debit card” offerings in the kids industry have a month fee
A Side by Side offering refers to a deal that is raising capital under two offering types. If you plan on investing less than US $20,000.00, you will automatically invest under the Regulation CF offering type. If you invest more than US $20,000.00, you must be an accredited investor and invest under the Regulation D offering type.
US $176,521 (under Reg CF only)
Investors who invest $317,000 or less will have their securities held in trust with a Custodian that will serve as a single shareholder of record. These investors will be subject to the Custodian’s Account Agreement, including the electronic delivery of all required information.
First 1,000 investors who also sign up for the Jassby Kids' Debit Card will see all fees waived with no minimum use for a full year and in addition, $50 for a purchase on the Jassby Mall. Can't beat that.
It is advised that you consult a tax professional to fully understand any potential tax implications of receiving investor perks before making an investment.
The graph below illustrates theor the of Jassby, Inc.'s prior rounds by year.
Kids and teens that are part of Generation Z (born between 1998-2010) are some 70M people in the US and Generation Alph (born after 2010) are some 17M with about 4M more born each year.
They have about 5 screens on average. They live via mobile. They shop online. They were born with Social Media. Over 80% of teens have an iPhone.
Kids and teens spend some $200B per year or some $3,000 a year each.
Jassby aims to become "top of wallet" for those kids. Unlike adults in the US who have 3 cards on average, with a lot having 5 and more, a kid will have 1. Jassby aims to become the preferred Mobile Payment service for this audience, the Payment App for these generations (we don't need to say "mobile" because kids of these generations will just assume that everything in mobile).
By building our own platform, Jassby is in a unique position to continue and provide financial services to its clients when they become young adults. Offerings like paycheck deposits will open for a user when they are 16 and adult credit offering, loans, etc. when they are 18.
Many young adults continue to live at home with their parents well into their late 20s (around 26-27). They get married later, need mortgages later and Jassby is going to be in a good position to provide financial services for them for the first decade of their adult life.
Jassby's platform also allows us to engage the B2B2C market, providing processing services to schools, sport clubs and entertainment parks, creating a captive audience and allowing for lower costs for user acquisition.
Jassby's biggest competitor is Greenlight Cards who offers debit cards for teens. We believe our full stack of technology provides us with an edge and an ability to perform much better than our competition. We also believe we are more efficient, use better technology and provide a fuller service.
The development and commercialization of the Company’s products and services are highly competitive. It faces competition with respect to any products and services that it may seek to develop or commercialize in the future. Its competitors include major companies worldwide. The Financial Technology market is an emerging industry where new competitors are entering the market frequently. Many of the Company’s competitors have significantly greater financial, technical and human resources and may have superior expertise in research and development and marketing approved services and thus may be better equipped than the Company to develop and commercialize services. These competitors also compete with the Company in recruiting and retaining qualified personnel and acquiring technologies. Smaller or early stage companies may also prove to be significant competitors, particularly through collaborative arrangements with large and established companies. Accordingly, the Company’s competitors may commercialize products more rapidly or effectively than the Company is able to, which would adversely affect its competitive position, the likelihood that its services will achieve initial market acceptance and its ability to generate meaningful additional revenues from its products and services.
Maintaining, extending, and expanding the Company's reputation and brand image are essential to the Company's business success. The Company seeks to maintain, extend, and expand their brand image through marketing investments, including advertising and consumer promotions, and product innovation. Increasing attention on marketing could adversely affect the Company's brand image. It could also lead to stricter regulations and greater scrutiny of marketing practices. Existing or increased legal or regulatory restrictions on the Company's advertising, consumer promotions and marketing, or their response to those restrictions, could limit their efforts to maintain, extend and expand their brands. Moreover, adverse publicity about regulatory or legal action against the Company could damage the Company's reputation and brand image, undermine their customers’ confidence and reduce long-term demand for their products, even if the regulatory or legal action is unfounded or not material to their operations.
In addition, the Company's success in maintaining, extending, and expanding the Company's brand image depends on their ability to adapt to a rapidly changing media environment. The Company increasingly relies on social media and online dissemination of advertising campaigns. The growing use of social and digital media increases the speed and extent that information or misinformation and opinions can be shared. Negative posts or comments about the Company, their brands or their products on social or digital media, whether or not valid, could seriously damage their brand and reputation. If the Company does not establish, maintain, extend and expand their brand image, then their product sales, financial condition and results of operations could be adversely affected.
The Company’s expenses will significantly increase as they seek to execute their current business model. Although the Company estimates that it has enough runway until end of year, they will be ramping up cash burn to promote revenue growth, further develop R&D, and fund other Company operations after the raise. Doing so could require significant effort and expense or may not be feasible.
Through its operations, the Company collects and stores certain personal information that customers provide to purchase products or services, enroll in promotional programs, register on the web site, or otherwise communicate and interact with the Company. The Company may share information about such persons with vendors that assist with certain aspects of their business. Security could be compromised and confidential customer or business information misappropriated. Loss of customer or business information could disrupt the Company's operations, damage their reputation, and expose them to claims from customers, financial institutions, payment card associations and other persons, any of which could have an adverse effect on their business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition, compliance with tougher privacy and information security laws and standards may result in significant expense due to increased investment in technology and the development of new operational processes.
The use of individually identifiable data by the Company's business, their business associates and third parties is regulated at the state, federal, and international levels. Costs associated with information security – such as investment in technology, the costs of compliance with consumer protection laws and costs resulting from consumer fraud – could cause the Company's business and results of operations to suffer materially. Additionally, the success of the Company's online operations depends upon the secure transmission of confidential information over public networks, including the use of cashless payments. The intentional or negligent actions of employees, business associates or third parties may undermine the Company's security measures. As a result, unauthorized parties may obtain access to the Company's data systems and misappropriate confidential data. There can be no assurance that advances in computer capabilities, new discoveries in the field of cryptography or other developments will prevent the compromise of the Company's customer transaction processing capabilities and personal data. If any such compromise of its security or the security of information residing with the Company's business associates or third parties were to occur, it could have a material adverse effect on the Company's reputation, operating results, and financial condition. Any compromise of the Company's data security may materially increase the costs the Company incurs to protect against such breaches and could subject the Company to additional legal risk.
The Company projects aggressive growth in 2021. If these assumptions are wrong and the projections regarding market penetration are too aggressive, then the financial forecast may overstate the Company's overall viability. In addition, the forward-looking statements are only predictions. The Company has based these forward-looking statements largely on its current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that it believes may affect its business, financial condition and results of operations. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.
The Company has not prepared any audited financial statements. Therefore, investors have no audited financial information regarding the Company’s capitalization or assets or liabilities on which to make investment decisions. If investors feel the information provided is insufficient, then they should not invest in the Company.
The reviewing CPA has included a “going concern” note in the reviewed financials. The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the recoverability of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company is still in the development stage and has not obtained enough revenues to support growing operations as of yet, among other factors, which raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon management's plans to raise additional capital from the issuance of debt or the sale of stock, its ability to commence profitable sales of its flagship product, and its ability to generate positive operational cash flow. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be required should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
The outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has adversely impacted global commercial activity and contributed to significant declines and volatility in financial markets. The coronavirus pandemic and government responses are creating disruption in global supply chains and adversely impacting many industries. The outbreak could have a continued material adverse impact on economic and market conditions and trigger a period of global economic slowdown. The rapid development and fluidity of this situation precludes any prediction as to the ultimate material adverse impact of the novel coronavirus. Nevertheless, the novel coronavirus presents material uncertainty and risk with respect to the Funds, their performance, and their financial results.
The Company has outstanding liabilities. The Company owes Needham Bank $336,000 in remaining payments due on their Paycheck Protection Program Loan.
The Preferred Stockholders may lose their veto rights over liquidation events in certain circumstances. In accordance with the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the Series Seed-1 Preferred Stockholders lose their veto right for a liquiation event in which the consideration received by the holders of Series Seed-1 Preferred Stock is $20.00 or more per share of Series Seed-1 Preferred Stock.
Start-up investing is risky. Investing in startups is very risky, highly speculative, and should not be made by anyone who cannot afford to lose their entire investment. Unlike an investment in a mature business where there is a track record of revenue and income, the success of a startup or early-stage venture often relies on the development of a new product or service that may or may not find a market. Before investing, you should carefully consider the specific risks and disclosures related to both this offering type and the company which can be found in this company profile and the documents in the data room below.
Your shares are not easily transferable. You should not plan on being able to readily transfer and/or resell your security. Currently there is no market or liquidity for these shares and the company does not have any plans to list these shares on an exchange or other secondary market. At some point the company may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a "liquidation event" occurs. A "liquidation event" is when the company either lists their shares on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.
The Company may not pay dividends for the foreseeable future. Unless otherwise specified in the offering documents and subject to state law, you are not entitled to receive any dividends on your interest in the Company. Accordingly, any potential investor who anticipates the need for current dividends or income from an investment should not purchase any of the securities offered on the Site.
Valuation and capitalization. Unlike listed companies that are valued publicly through market-driven stock prices, the valuation of private companies, especially startups, is difficult to assess and you may risk overpaying for your investment. In addition, there may be additional classes of equity with rights that are superior to the class of equity being sold.
You may only receive limited disclosure. While the company must disclose certain information, since the company is at an early-stage they may only be able to provide limited information about its business plan and operations because it does not have fully developed operations or a long history. The company may also only obligated to file information periodically regarding its business, including financial statements. A publicly listed company, in contrast, is required to file annual and quarterly reports and promptly disclose certain events — through continuing disclosure that you can use to evaluate the status of your investment.
Investment in personnel. An early-stage investment is also an investment in the entrepreneur or management of the company. Being able to execute on the business plan is often an important factor in whether the business is viable and successful. You should be aware that a portion of your investment may fund the compensation of the company's employees, including its management. You should carefully review any disclosure regarding the company's use of proceeds.
Possibility of fraud. In light of the relative ease with which early-stage companies can raise funds, it may be the case that certain opportunities turn out to be money-losing fraudulent schemes. As with other investments, there is no guarantee that investments will be immune from fraud.
Lack of professional guidance. Many successful companies partially attribute their early success to the guidance of professional early-stage investors (e.g., angel investors and venture capital firms). These investors often negotiate for seats on the company's board of directors and play an important role through their resources, contacts and experience in assisting early-stage companies in executing on their business plans. An early-stage company may not have the benefit of such professional investors.

Frequently Asked Questions
A Side by Side offering refers to a deal that is raising capital under two offering types. This Side by Side offering is raising under Regulation CF and Rule 506(c) of Regulation D.
The Form C is a document the company must file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) which includes basic information about the company and its offering and is a condition to making a Reg CF offering available to investors. It is important to note that the SEC does not review the Form C, and therefore is not recommending and/or approving any of the securities being offered.
Before making any investment decision, it is highly recommended that prospective investors review the Form C filed with the SEC (included in the company's profile) before making any investment decision.
Rule 506(c) under Regulation D is a type of offering with no limits on how much a company may raise. The company may generally solicit their offering, but the company must verify each investor’s status as an accredited investor prior to closing and accepting funds. To learn more about Rule 506(c) under Regulation D and other offering types check out our blog and academy.
Title III of the JOBS Act outlines Reg CF, a type of offering allowing private companies to raise up to $1 million from all Americans. Prior capital raising options limited private companies to raising money only from accredited investors, historically the wealthiest ~2% of Americans. Like a Kickstarter campaign, Reg CF allows companies to raise funds online from their early adopters and the crowd. However, instead of providing investors a reward such as a t-shirt or a card, investors receive securities, typically equity, in the startups they back. To learn more about Reg CF and other offering types check out our blog and academy.
When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Jassby, Inc.. Once Jassby, Inc. accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Jassby, Inc. in exchange for your securities. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Jassby, Inc..
To make an investment, you will need the following information readily available:
- Personal information such as your current address and phone number
- Employment and employer information
- Net worth and income information
- Social Security Number or passport
- ABA bank routing number and checking account number (typically found on a personal check or bank statement)
If you are investing under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, your status as an Accredited Investor will also need to be verified and you will be asked to provide documentation supporting your income, net worth, revenue, or net assets or a letter from a qualified advisor such as a Registered Investment Advisor, Registered Broker Dealer, Lawyer, or CPA.
An investor is limited in the amount that he or she may invest in a Reg CF offering during any 12-month period:
- If either the annual income or the net worth of the investor is less than $100,000, the investor is limited to the greater of $2,000 or 5% of the lesser of his or her annual income or net worth.
- If the annual income and net worth of the investor are both greater than $100,000, the investor is limited to 10% of the lesser of his or her annual income or net worth, to a maximum of $100,000.
Separately, Jassby, Inc. has set a minimum investment amount of US $1,000.
Accredited investors investing $20,000 or over do not have investment limits.
You are a partial owner of the company, you do own securities after all! But more importantly, companies which have raised money via Regulation CF must file information with the SEC and post it on their websites on an annual basis. Receiving regular company updates is important to keep shareholders educated and informed about the progress of the company and their investment. This annual report includes information similar to a company’s initial Reg CF filing and key information that a company will want to share with its investors to foster a dynamic and healthy relationship.
In certain circumstances a company may terminate its ongoing reporting requirement if:
- The company becomes a fully-reporting registrant with the SEC
- The company has filed at least one annual report, but has no more than 300 shareholders of record
- The company has filed at least three annual reports, and has no more than $10 million in assets
- The company or another party purchases or repurchases all the securities sold in reliance on Section 4(a)(6)
- The company ceases to do business
However, regardless of whether a company has terminated its ongoing reporting requirement per SEC rules, SeedInvest works with all companies on its platform to ensure that investors are provided quarterly updates. These quarterly reports will include information such as: (i) quarterly net sales, (ii) quarterly change in cash and cash on hand, (iii) material updates on the business, (iv) fundraising updates (any plans for next round, current round status, etc.), and (v) any notable press and news.
Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now Jassby, Inc. does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Jassby, Inc. may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Jassby, Inc. either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.
You can return to SeedInvest at any time to view your portfolio of investments and obtain a summary statement. If invested under Regulation CF you may also receive periodic updates from the company about their business, in addition to monthly account statements.
