Millennials are the most educated generation in history, yet – deep in debt and mistrustful of financial markets – need significant help navigating their financial lives. Reaching this mobile-native audience successfully will be critical to business news outlets’ own performance.

One startup publisher that’s going big is Mic, with its launch of the Payoff, a vertical dedicated to personal finance for young people. Susie Poppick, Mic's senior money editor, talks about the Payoff and creating engaging content for those facing life’s first big financial questions. The Payoff’s multi-format strategy — podcasts, interactive online products and a newsletter — offers insights for all of us seeking to reach this massive audience.

After a conversation with Poppick, we’ll hear from Brianna McGurran, a personal finance columnist at NerdWallet, on coverage strategies for millennials and their money — the topics and storytelling approaches that resonate most.

Speakers: Susie Poppick, senior money editor, Mic and Brianna McGurran, personal finance columnist, NerdWallet.

Sponsored by National Endowment for Financial Education.
