About Plenty

Plenty empowers modern couples to seamlessly manage their finances together. In an age where dual-income households are the norm and financial choices are increasingly collaborative, Plenty created the first all-in-one money management platform tailored specifically for today's partners.

Co-founders Emily Luk and Channing Allen met while working together at Even, which was acquired by One in 2022. They got engaged to each other in late 2021, and got the idea for Plenty as they looked for products to help them plan their finances together.
