Payd and Dwellcome Named 2 of 21 Tech Companies to Watch Out for in 2021



Payd is Canada’s first financial app dedicated to post-secondary education. The app has been developed to help students save and pay for their school without changing their spending habits. Their secret? Payd uses a unique card-linking technology that eliminates frequent bank credentials logins to round user’s purchases and earn cash-back rewards. These savings can then be used to invest through one of Questrade’s many accounts (TFSA, RESP, RRSP, etc.) Also, understanding that it takes a village to pay for a child, the app is open to family members to put their round ups and cash-back towards their student’s education.

Relocating is the third most stressful thing you will deal with in your lifetime, it can take three months up to a year for a new family to feel at home after moving. It’s a time-consuming process even after the physical move, from setting up new utilities, discovering local amenities, finding a new doctor, and making new friends. Without a sense of belonging this can leave some residents feeling lonely and detached from their community. We hope to reduce this timeframe from move-in day one.

For first time homeowners, short-term renters, and newcomers we want them to feel welcomed, that someone empathizes with what they are going through. Dwellcome is an onboarding platform designed for community professionals and good neighbours to create personalized welcome kits for an individual/family and gift to them on their behalf.
