LearnVest expands its presence at SkySong
LearnVest, a financial planning company that provides fee-based financial advisory services, is expanding its presence at SkySong, The ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center.
The company, which chose SkySong in 2014 as its first satellite location outside of its New York headquarters, is occupying a larger space in the SkySong 2 building, expanding from about 5,000 square-feet to almost 8,500 square-feet.
Since launching in 2009, LearnVest has helped hundreds of thousands of people across the country get financially secure and save for their most important goals. Since its launch, LearnVest has raised nearly $75 million in venture-financing, and in 2015, LearnVest was acquired by Northwestern Mutual.
LearnVest has been awarded numerous accolades, including being named as one of Time’s “50 Best Websites,” Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies,” and three years running Best of Show awards at FinovateFall 2011, 2012 and 2013.
LearnVest now has over 50 employees on the SkySong campus. Overall, SkySong is home to more than 1,500 jobs.
“LearnVest has been a SkySong tenant since 2014 and it has grown by leaps and bounds,” said Sharon Harper, president and CEO of Plaza Companies, the master developer of the project. “Its success is a win for the city of Scottsdale and for SkySong. We are excited that LearnVest is not only continuing its presence at SkySong but expanding it. The choice to grow at SkySong confirms that we have created a welcoming, dynamic and innovative business environment.”
“LearnVest is proud to call SkySong home to our Planning Hub,” said LearnVest Founder and CEO, Alexa von Tobel. “As our team of financial planners continues to grow—to support our mission of bringing financial planning to households nationwide—we are looking forward to expanding our presence in Arizona, alongside other companies working to innovate each and every day.”
