Today, we’re changing our name from Hapi to Nosso.
We started building Hapi with one simple goal in mind - building an app that would help parents invest for your children's future together.
We're humbled by the number of responses and compliments we've received so far and want to thank everyone who provided feedback in the early days to help us improve the product.
While that’s been great, we feel this is the right moment to grow up a bit. And create a brand that Mums, Dads, Godparents and Grandparents can all love and trust, together.
This means becoming a little bit more mature in our tone, our colour palette and our designs.
So here we are, meet Nosso...
So why Nosso?
We believe financial services have forgotten about families. Just think about it. Whether you look at savings, investments or even kids' accounts, they're all built for only one person. Managing money on their own. A reason why "personal finance" is such buzzword these days.
Many of you reached out to tell us how much you enjoy our in-app family features:
- managing your child's money with your partner
- collecting memories & messages to look back on years later
- inviting your family & friends to chip in
Nosso translates to 'Our & Ours' from Portuguese.
We thought it was only fitting. As we're on a mission to change old-fashioned personal finance to 'Family Finance', ‘My finance’ to our ‘Our finance’.
We're building something different tailored for your family.
Changing what once were Mine to Ours. Just like what happens when you take the decision to start a family of your own. What was once Mine becomes Ours.
My goals --> Our goals
My money --> Our money
My investments --> Our investments
My future --> Our future
Our journey to rebuild finance for modern families begins today. Your children's future will still be our top priority, but expect many more exciting products headed your way designed for the broader family.
Sounds exciting? Join the Nosso family today.
Some more exciting news
We're pleased to announce that we've raised over £2m of capital to help us make our vision a reality. We're backed by Octopus Ventures and Anthemis.
Two huge investors that have helped companies like Zoopla, Depop, Cazoo and Betterment, grow from little startups to household names.
We’ve also brought on many more investors including Entrepreneur First (our first ever backers who helped us start the idea back in 2020) and angel investors who have backed or led some big names in finance such as Transferwise, Nested, Tide, Schroders Wealth, IG group, Farewill and many many more.
We’ll use this money to continue developing our product, helping you invest for more and more of your goals in more and more ways.
We’ll also continue focusing on making it easier and easier for your child to receive investments gifts from other family and for you to send investments gifts to nieces, nephews and whoever else.

When you invest your money is at risk. You might end up with more than you put in - or you might end up with less.
