Aspiration is in the business of fighting the climate crisis. We help people and businesses build sustainable impact into what they do every day by making it easy, automated, and powerful -- whether it is in the ways people spend and save their money or the ways businesses engage their customers and employees. The estimated cumulative climate impact of the Aspiration community thus far is the equivalent of taking every car in the state of Wyoming off the road for a year. Aspiration is a certified B Corporation and, in fact, has been named to the “Best for the World” list of the top five percent of highest scored certified B Corporations four years in a row. Aspiration has raised over $550M in funding to date and is growing quickly. Aspiration Values Action: We take initiative. We are doers, not bystanders. Boldness: We don’t tinker, we transform. Customer-Centered: Our customers are at the core of our business. Delivering for them is our North Star. Diligence & Dedication: We do what we say we’re going to do, when we say we’re going to do it. Entrepreneurial: Act like an entrepreneur not an employee, generate results for the company and customers everyday.
