Who are we?

We are IT-Engineers who met in their undergraduate college in Mumbai. After moving to the US in 2014, through our separate journeys we learned about money but when we connected in 2020 (thanks, COVID😷), we had learned the same thing:

✅ Investing is important

✅ No one wants to talk about money

✅ It is not difficult to learn about finance

We wanted to share our journeys through Cold Brew Money so that you don’t have to start from scratch.

🤔 Why should you listen to a bunch of noobs who are still learning about money talk about money? You shouldn’t. Do your own damn research. We do the same.

We are no financial experts and we will never pretend to be one. We are life-long learners and as we learn, we want to share our research and notes through CBM,

So, if you stick around you might pick up a thing or two – mostly from our mistakes but also from our experiences.
