Boulevard R

Boulevard R brings independent, personalized retirement advice to consumers in the mass affluent segment through a web-based service that leverages professional advice and user-generated content to address issues of increasing complexity and responsibility in retirement planning.

We are looking for students with marketing and business development backgrounds.
Our educational personal finance tools empower consumers by providing independent and personalized retirement advice to the masses at no cost to users. Our social mission is to increase the success rate of consumers planning for retirement.

The founder's background is in human rights, as well as consumer rights. While at Cal he was the first undergrad to receive a summer fellowship from the Center for Human Rights (2000) .

The startup evolved out of a problem the founder's dad had with retirement planning and the realization that there are a growing number of people in his situation. We have brought together a team of programmers, designers and independent financial advisors who also feel passionately about delivering valuable tools to the marketplace.
