About Mindblown Labs
Mindblown Labs (MBL) is an education technology company that creates highly-engaging, mobile social games to help teens and young adults develop financial literacy and other 21st century skills. Our mission is to utilize gaming principles to inspire learning anytime, anywhere. Our first game is focused on financial literacy. Financial illiteracy leads to poor life decisions and, ultimately, poor life outcomes.
Our team is passionate about building awesome games that are both addictive and educational. We are multi-disciplinary and have expertise in game development, informal learning, and personal finance.
