"My business grows when my team grows. 
so it’s in everyone's best interest to be
financially intelligent together."



of employees want financial
wellness from their employer


According to a recent Forbes article, Financial Wellness is the #1 requested benefit by employees. Investing in your team's success can ignite the success of your company.



of Americans don't have
$1000 in emergency savings

Most Americans are 1-2 paychecks away from significant debt, bankruptcy, or even homelessness. This, often unknown, stress can lead to poor health, mental illness, and reduced capacity for creative problem-solving.



of employees say financial stress interferes with work

Meaning you have team members missing work, are less focused and engaged, as well as less productive than non-financially stressed colleagues. It can easily lead to higher rates of turnover - costing you thousands each year.

Ortus Academy is on a mission to change these stats
by working with businesses & their teams

Being a business owner Is hard, but rewarding! It gives you the power to change hundreds of thousands of lives. We are here to help you do that.

Ortus Academy believes businesses and entrepreneurs change more than just the lives of their customers. Our businesses have an impact on our communities, suppliers, stockholders, and most importantly on our employees, their families, and their communities. It is a lot to be responsible for - but as we know, "With great power, comes great responsibility." Financial Intelligence has an important place in this impact.


We love working with entrepreneurial thinkers and business owners who:

  1. Believe in team culture

  2. Believe in helping their people grow as individuals, and

  3. Understand their impact and influence in the neighborhood.

If you want to:

  • Build a Strong Team

  • Empower Your Employees

  • Make Smart Financial Decisions

    Then you are in the right place!

Our programs provide actionable solutions for your employees, developing your team’s financial stability and guiding them towards their financial growth while promoting effective communication, leadership, and vulnerability. 


The stats above highlight the importance of our teams being financially intelligent and we know that a business operates at its peak when we invest in our teams and help support them in becoming more.

“People around me are panicked. Or they are hiding under a rock. I see that more probably. I’ve felt like I had a good handle on what I could do, but now I have a much clearer vision of what I need to do. I feel much better knowing my numbers, too. A guestimate wasn’t good enough.”

Frequently asked questions

What if I have team members that aren’t Millennials or Generation Z?

We believe that understanding money and developing the right skills with it are less about age and more about stage. So, we are always here to provide education to everyone that is interested to making change. Our style, content, examples, and way of introducing concepts may be more aligned to younger audiences, but we have no opposition to serving clients that may have team members that don’t fall in the Millennial to Gen Z age windows. We are happy to serve businesses that believe this education is important.

How long are the workshops you host?

In-person workshops generally run a half-day. We offer abbreviated workshops as well, generally as follow-on services once per quarter from our kickoff event. Our virtual workshops generally span no more than 90 minutes. We often offer virtual services in sequence because we know how hard it can be to sit and listen in a traditional conference call for anymore than that.

Do you provide workshops and the online content separately?

Workshops and content can be provided separately. We believe that providing them together provides the most value to your team, but we are open to serving you based on your specific needs.

How much does it cost?

We work to provide valuable education and experiences for all of our clients. Given that each business has their own wants, needs, and expectations we work closely with each organization to craft a custom package. We're happy to give you a quote. Use the contact box below to reach out and let us know: 1) Which service you are looking to implement. 2) The number of people you expect to be invovled. 3) Your business location (if in-person is preferred). 4) Any budgetary expectations -- this way we can give you an idea as to what we might be able to provide at your price point, and make this process easy and efficient for you as possible.
