Our Story

Benjamin Aronson started FinancePond in 2019. While working on a solo business plan, Benjamin got stuck and couldn’t find a reliable source online to answer his question. He realized that there was a lack of quality content online to help entrepreneurs get to the next stage.

To fill this gap Benjamin rounded up some of his best friends with business, finance and entrepreneurial backgrounds to launched FinancePond.

Among them they have worked as financial educators, certified public accountants, investment advisors, law consultants and of course, business owners.

Together they are a team of business and personal finance experts with real world experience.

Meet The Team

Meet Ben đź‘‹

Meet Benjamin! Benjamin is our CEO and has been pioneering FinancePond since 2020. As CEO Benjamin gets involved in just about everything here at FinancePond. From market research to content writing there isn’t something that scares him away. Benjamin started his career volunteering in various financial positions in college. He also interned for 2 years at an accounting firm to better understand the financial world.

Benjamin studied business management with a specialization in accounting at the IDC international school.
