THE KITTY APP
AT A GLANCE

The Kitty app is designed to allow users to pool money for a specific event, group outing, fundraiser and more. Users can collect, share and spend funds all in one place without having to say “I’ll pay you later” or “I don’t have any cash.”

Users simply create a group and invite their friends. Each person can then add money to The Kitty, and the organizer pays for expenses from The Kitty app with a Virtual Card through Apple Pay or Google Pay or by withdrawing money.

THE PROBLEM:
MANUAL MONEY POOLING

After pooling physical money on a trip to Paris for drinks, travel/hotel expenses and events, Amanda, Kate and Wendy (The Kitty App co-founders) wondered why there wasn’t an easier way to pay for things together as a group.

They returned home and continued to ponder why something as simple as a virtual kitty didn’t exist, leading to weeks of research and evaluation. The group found that many people struggle to compile money for specific purposes without needing multiple apps, making the process difficult to manage.

Soon after, Corey (co-founder and CEO), Amanda, Kate and Wendy had a discussion about The Kitty and how it might function in today’s world. That meeting brought forth a host of ideas that would lead us to where we are now…

INVITE FRIENDS. CREATE GROUPS. CONTRIBUTE MONEY.
THE SOLUTION: 
VIRTUAL MONEY POOLING

Now, we are offering an app that helps people pool money in a virtual environment, invite and interact with their friends and ultimately revolutionize the way they use and share digital currency in their everyday lives.

With The Kitty, users can pool their money together for specific events and spend the money from the Group or Event's virtual card. We make it easy for users to pay with their virtual card or spend money from their own card and withdraw from The Kitty to be reimbursed. The Kitty makes it easy to control funds for many different events and gets rid of the need to keep track of who owes what. Within the app, you can see who has contributed, who hasn’t, and message everyone to stay connected.




Paying from the Group or Event is easy: We are integrated directly with Apple and Google Wallets, allowing users to pay with their virtual card anywhere, whether in-person or online. Each Group or Event has its own unique virtual card number that can be used anywhere a credit card can be used.

HOW IT WORKS

Create Groups/Events. Users create a Group or Event for any occasion from birthday parties to fundraisers. The user can also choose an icon, title, date and location for their group or event, then invite friends, choose a fixed or open contribution amount, message members of each group and spend money from the group or event on the designated virtual card.



Invite Friends. Users can then invite their friends from Facebook, a contact list or group/event link. We also notify the group when someone joins the group or event, contributes, leaves or sends a message. Each user creates a profile, adds a bank account or credit card and away they go! All funds not used can be distributed equally back to the group members or donated to a charity.





Collect & Spend Funds. The Kitty provides a unique virtual card for each Group that can connect to Apple and Google Pay and can be used anywhere. The Kitty app updates automatically every time money is spent.
