financial issues for businesses and individuals.
About

The Prohaus Group is a private equity investment and advisory firm founded in 2009, offering strategic capital advisory and venture development services for the financial industry. Our mission is to address the fundamental issues within the global financial markets for both individuals and businesses. We not only strive to surpass new technologies for broken financial systems but rather bridge the gap between businesses and individual’s financial needs, behaviors, and motivations. Our professional network of advisors, investors and strategic partners, all share a passion for pioneering innovation in the financial services industry, helping to develop and nurture companies that are shaping the future of global finance and local economies.

Part Advisory, part Incubator, and 1,000% passion and focus. In a post-financial crisis world still full of slow economic growth and unbalanced risks, for us it's easy to get excited about the future of global finance and execute on actionable financial innovation. Prohaus Group is a sustainable model for helping entrepreneurs, investors, and local communities to succeed in the financial services sector and support new disruptive solutions by industry innovators. We seek to create financial innovations that families, businesses, and financial professionals can believe in and local economies can feel connected to.
Change Agent for Global Finance

Something big is happening across local economies, but a more fundamental question is, will technology enable a radical improvement in quality, productivity, and accessibility of global finance. The urgency for today's unmet economic needs is re-kindled by a community-driven paradigm on innovation of new financial models, and mobilized by the collective contributions of society stakeholders. read our manifesto

Universal Access
to Finance

We strive to promote opportunities for a better, diverse financial system, one that serves people and planet, and allows life to thrive. Access to affordable, unbiased financial advise and investment products are no longer for the rich and privileged. Fortunately, this is no longer the case with the use of new financial technology.

Financial Support
for Women

The female population and their growing control over wealth assets is a vastly increasing concern, which places increased demand on the financial services industry to adhere to women's financial needs. We aid women and their families on their path to financial wellness and prosperity by providing tools and supportive ecosystem for financial literacy and investor confidence. read our manifesto

Impact Investing Starts at Home

We believe that children should apart of the financial innovation ecosystem. Rather than learning from costly mistakes during mid-life, make mistakes and get feedback during adolescence. One of the greatest, most valuable lessons to teach children is how to be responsible with money. Establish a sustainable foundation for financial health at the earliest age possible. read our manifesto

Behavior's the Gateway to
Financial Health

The pulse of financial innovation is offering new perspectives that drive change and corresponds to the new vision of the new economy. We take a more proactive and goal-oriented approach to financial wellness and we expect the industry stakeholders to join us in that regard. We aim to improve the quality of human and business life by evaluating financial decisions that enable people and businesses to do more, feel better and live longer. read our manifesto
