Learn about the entrepreneurial journey of Peter Polson, CEO of Tiller Money. Find out why he wants to empower you with tools to automate spreadsheets so you can take control of your money.

Guest Biography

Peter Polson's dad had him keep a ledger as a kid. As soon as Peter could add numbers he had to track his 25 cent allowance, including what he’d saved, shared, and spent. Later as a teenager, fascinated by the promise of an online ledger, Peter started teaching classes introducing others Quicken. In college he worked on Microsoft Money as a program manager.

After spending the first part of his career at JP Morgan, Nextlink, Junxion, and Dashwire, he grew frustrated by the tools available to help people manage their finances. That frustration led to research which led to inspiration, all of which came together to create Tiller.
