Emilie Bellet is the founder and CEO of Vestpod and the author of Amazon bestseller You’re Not Broke, You’re Pre-Rich. Formerly working in private equity, Emilie launched Vestpod to change the conversation about money and empower women financially. Emilie started her career at Lehman Brothers where she worked as an analyst in private equity merchant banking.
Reflecting on her years working in finance, she realized she was not saving or investing enough and could not find the support to do so. She then decided to launch Vestpod for women - as a way to provide education and a community for women to start breaking the taboo around money. Vestpod is a digital platform with a popular weekly newsletter as well as personal finance workshops and networking events.
Emilie also co-authored The WealthTech Book. Emilie has been included in the Women In FinTech Powerlist 2018 (""Rising Stars"") and is a finalist in the 2018 Women in Finance Awards (“Disruptor of the year”).
Emilie writes a column for the Financial Times and Vestpod has been featured on TV and in publications such as BBC News, Financial Times, Vogue, Glamour, This Is Money, Refinery29, Stylist, Sheerluxe, Monocle and Courier Magazine.
