In only three years, financial planning company Origin grew from 20 to more than 150 employees and raised over 70 million USD. While only beginning their journey, the company — created to help employers answer their employees’ tough questions about financial benefits — has found success by focusing on solutions for real-world problems.

  • Tell your story. Gain trust in the industry by showing up and making yourself known.


  • Be resilient. Expect adversity and stay true to why you started the company.
