Our Story

We’re Reena and Becky, the co-founders of Penny League.

When we reached 30, we started wondering about finances and investing. All our guy friends were talking about what "stonks” to buy on some gambling-like trading app, and we kept hearing the word Dogecoin everywhere.

Why weren’t we talking about it? Why weren’t we having investing conversations with our friends instead of just talking about our soul-crushing jobs or how that smoothie didn’t sit well?

After asking hundreds of other women, we realized we weren’t alone. Women feel left out and left behind, unsure where to start, and wondering if they need to be an “expert” before they could even start investing.

Only 26% of women are investing, compared to 43% of men the same age.

We're here to challenge these stats.

We believe every woman should have the tools, knowledge, community, and means by which to invest.

Financial independence is the ultimate feminist move. Knowing what to do with our money makes us stronger, more resilient, and powerful.

To make society more equitable, we have to know more than just salary negotiation and career advancement. We also need to invest and make our money work for us. Come join Penny League and help change the dialogue.

Money, investing, and growing our wealth should not be taboo for us as women.

Somewhere along the way, society dictated that women should budget and clip coupons while men should rule the investments.

We also were told that investing was risky, that we needed to be an expert before starting, and that it was uncouth of us to talk and ask questions about $$$.

We couldn't disagree with that more.
Women have 32 cents for every man's dollar. With COVID, and a mass exodus of women leaving the workforce, it's only getting worse.

We're a small but mighty team, working on our mission to close this gender wealth gap by any means necessary.

Even if that means learning and consuming all this content for everyone else. Even if it means giving you a nudge to start learning this money sh$t. Because we can't stay on the side lines any longer as the patriarchy grows their money and life passes us by.

Reena Badyal

Indian at my core, a sprinkle of Brit, but mostly American.

I went from letting my husband do all the investing to seeing him make mistakes and thinking I could do it better.

I'm all about talking money with my girlfriends. I've ]helped dozens of my friends start investing safely and with confidence.

🤪 British at my core, with a sprinkle of American. Aries, should I say more?

I've gone from hiding from my bank account, to staring at that sh$t straight out.

Now I'd love to help other women do the same. I'm all about the glass half full and staying in the moment. Pasta for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. 🙏🏻
