The Countdown: Koho’s Year in Review

Well, here we are.

2017 was a year when millenials were chastized for having good taste in brunch foods instead of saving for a mortgage, and the banks continued to charge Canadians some of the highest fees in the world.

It was a pretty bangin’ year for Koho, to be honest. We went from beta to a full launch of our app + reloadable card, and got thousands of Canadians to join us.

Since at heart we are tech nerds who live for data, below is a breakdown of how people used Koho to spend + save smarter in 2017.
