Story Behind the Name
Later in life, John D. Rockefeller began distributing dimes to children and young adults he encountered along with a lesson — to create a fortune, work hard and save money. The dimes allowed him to establish a basis of conversation and rapport.
In the same vein, Dimespring facilitates conversation of personal finance. We seek to offer a foundation for friendly, but spirited discussions leading to personal financial growth, springing forth from a beginning as humble as a dime.
