About us

We are on a mission to help students develop financial skills and confidence for life

Blackbullion was born out of a simple premise: we’re all better off when everyone is money smart. Our founder, Vivi started by offering finance-related presentations on campuses across the UK. But, she dared to dream bigger: why reach hundreds of students when you can reach hundreds of thousands?

We launched Blackbullion.com to provide digital financial education that develops financial confidence, knowledge, skills, and empowers better decision making. We are working towards our goal of improving outcomes for millions of young people across the globe by partnering with universities across the globe.

Over 700,000 students worldwide can currently access personal finance courses and university funding through our platform. We want to make the world a better place by making it money-smart.

never stops

Innovation and problem solving is a marathon, not a sprint. We focus on developing our skills and knowledge so we can tackle challenges in the best possible way.

Be proud of
what we do

Our university partners, and their students, are the life force behind our business. We want to make sure everything we do is bringing value into their lives.

above ego

The only way we can succeed in our mission is to work together towards the #moneysmarter world. Teamwork makes the dream work!


Blackbullion is focused on doing good while doing well. Impact is the driving force behind our business culture and if we aren’t making a positive change to people’s lives we are failing.
