Rafael Reis - ChangUP Founder

Rafael Reis

Rafael is the founder of Change Direction, a SaaS platform that helps individuals prioritize their finances. Before his startup, Rafael was an SME business consultant and a part-time instructor at BCIT (Business Data Analytics). By default, Rafael is always the go-to person to ask about personal finances. He discovered there wasn’t any viable tools that allowed for individuals to assess their needs without bias.

Financial education comes in many different forms. Unfortunately, it is rarely equal across the board. Many people have learned how to manage their finances from conversations at the dinner table; some benefitted from their school providing basic lessons on budgeting and taxes, while the rest either will have to teach themselves or hope for the best. The inspiration behind the creation of Change Direction was the idea that everyone should have the opportunity to understand their finances without bias to ensure they are making the best decisions necessary.
