Harvard-founded and MIT-backed Envel plans to launch their main offering in Q3 2019, allowing users to have real-time control over their finances with the ability to turn their account on ‘autopilot’, thus building wealth autonomously.

Its primary differentiator is the use of artificial intelligence services to guide real savings and long-term wealth accumulation.
