Featured Finance Startup: Mint

Our Featured Finance Startup this week is Mint, an online personal spending and budgetary tool to help track your goals, set a budget and do more with your money. In 2005, Mint founder Aaron Patzer was looking at a gruelling afternoon of accounting-type work, from poring over statements to categorizing purchases. A few hours in to the boring must-do project, Aaron started thinking that there has to be a better way, and instead of finishing his personal finance work started work on what would become Mint.
