Our Story

Founded and led by a female entrepreneur and humanitarian, Spave is the first and only all-in-one financial wholeness app that focuses on giving and inspiring social good.

Why Susan
Built Spave

On a mission to trip to East Africa, CEO Susan Langer witnessed the Tanzanian proverb "Little by little, a little becomes a lot" ring true as local women climbed out of poverty and repaid business loans at a staggering 99% rate through micro-payments. Inspired by the dedication and tenacity of these entrepreneurs, Susan crafted a consumer app that would empower everyone to make a tangible impact on their communities and personal finances.

Core Beliefs

We believe that everyone has a purpose that drives their relationships, behaviors, and choices. We believe that how we choose to manage our money reflects our priorities.

Our actions today will determine the health and well-being of our future. The principle at the core of our technology and company is generosity—to give freely and often.



We founded this company and built Spave on that principle, and it is our goal that every person, every company, and every community with whom we interact with is better because of their engagement with us.
