Neobank Joust Targets Freelancers With New App


Neobank startup Joust is rolling out a new banking app to help freelancers and self-employed people manage their businesses, the company announced on Wednesday (Jan. 29).

The app was designed using input from customers and features an analytical dashboard, Joust Visa debit card management, invoice creation, payments and more. Additional features will be introduced throughout 2020.

Joust Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Lamine Zarrad said the Joust app first launched in beta, where the startup “dug deep” to tap into customer feedback.

He added that customers of Joust are “risk-takers who want one place to easily manage their finances.” Feedback indicated that people wanted a “modern, streamlined user experience, ways to quickly visualize their finances, and manage clients, income and payments.”

The new features complement PayArmour, Joust’s invoice-guaranteeing product that covers unpaid client invoices. Joust accounts are also FDIC-insured and are combined with a merchant account.
