Hardbacon - Financial Advisory & Budgeting Software Service of the Year
As the CEO of Hardbacon, Julien aims to guide his team with collaborative leadership. He co-founded Hardbacon to help Canadians make better investment decisions and has since raised over two million dollars and landed strategic partnerships with financial institutions all over the country. Before launching Hardbacon, Julien shared his passion for finance and technology as a business reporter for Les Affaires. He also served as Director of Growth for a fintech investment fund.
Hardbacon was co-founded in 2017 by current CEO Julien Brault as an app for retail investors and transformed into a budgeting app for all Canadians to take control of their personal finances.
In 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hardbacon worked with passion to help Canadians face the economic downturn by becoming a free app and releasing financial products comparison tools.
And so, the company developed an application that combines planning, budgeting and financial products comparison tools.
More than 200,000 monthly active users later, Hardbacon is proudly helping Canadians on the road to financial independence.
Today, Hardbacon is constantly improving its web and mobile app offering and is working on new tools to further help Canadians, including an AI based stocks rating system, the addition of credit scores, as well as the introduction of a web version of the Hardbacon app.
Our growing team continues to be dedicated to our mission and aim to provide professional and trustworthy information with passion. As we continue to grow our company, our objective will remain the same: to help Canadians make better financial decisions and in turn bring home the bacon.
At Hardbacon, we are on a mission to help Canadians make better financial decisions and in turn bring home the bacon to lead wealthier and more financially secure lives. We provide the tools, information, and insight everyone needs to navigate their finances with confidence and ease.
Hardbacon connects to your bank accounts and credit cards, allowing you to gain a complete picture of your finances.
It works as a planning app where you can add financial goals and turn your ambitions into realities; as a budgeting app that allows you to track how and where you spend your money and finally as a savings app with special comparison tools for financial products.
Our comparison tools help people save on recurring services, from credit cards to insurance policies, including bank accounts and robo-advisors. As users sync their accounts with Hardbacon for budgeting, we can easily help identify the best and most affordable products.
