"I am in *heaven* with Carry. Payroll deduction to my Solo 401k and then automatically invested. You solved the use case that matters most. If i wasn’t running my own startup, I’d want to work with you all."

Cheryl Kellond, Carry Customer

"Major shoutout to my tax strategist from [Carry]. She crafted for me a 32-page tax and financial plan that outlined insurance, retirement, and how to achieve my LT goals."

Austin Hankwitz, Carry Customer

"Thanks so much. I reviewed my financial plan and it provided a lot of guidance and things to think about in terms of my long-term goals."

Sherrell Dorsey, Carry Customer

"It was one of the first platforms I’ve seen that specifically targets and helps solopreneurs, s-corp owners, self-employed, and gives them an all-in-one platform to easily manage retirement and tax saving strategies and accounts. I once tried to open a Solo 401k with [Other Provider], and it was a daunting task. Carry was a few clicks."

Nick Chester (CFP®, ChFC®)

"I love Carry so much. It was so easy to set up my Solo 401k (which if you’ve ever tried to do that, it’s not always super simple) and inside I was able to invest in a ton of different ETF options"

Erin Confortini, Carry Customer
