Tony Aguilar is founder & CEO of Chipper, the first payments and rewards app that allows borrowers to chip away their student debt through everyday transactions. He is also co-founder and former CEO of Student Loan Genius, where he invented the student loan benefit, a perk allowing companies to contribute to employees' student debt. 
 
As a first generation high school graduate who grew up in a small West-Texas town, Tony knew he’d have to finance every penny of his out-of-state college tuition. But, what he didn’t know when he walked into the financial aid office to sign his name on the dotted line was that we he would carry more than $100,000 in student loan debt off the graduation stage.
 
This eye-opening, but all-too-common situation led Tony into a decade-long career in financial services, where he worked as a financial advisor, founding both Amiti Advising, a millennial-focused financial planning company, Campus Slice, a tuition crowdfunding platform, Student Loan Genius, and now Chipper.

Featured in the Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Money Magazine, and on CNN, Tony’s commitment to helping young professionals get ahead and live a life free from debt is the common thread in all of his work. President Obama invited him to the White House to share his story and the impact he is having with Student Loan Genius. He also serves on the board of Mission Capital and is a member on the Forbes Financial Council.
 
When Tony is not working on one of his ventures, he is either spending time with his four-year old daughter, running around Town Lake, guest lecturing at the University of Texas and Concordia University on entrepreneurship and personal finance, serving as Chairman of Concordia University’s Emerging Leaders Advisory Board, or mentoring fellow social entrepreneurs and startups.


Gourmet lunch and iced tea provided. Parking on site at the Chase Tower is $5. Event is on the 20th floor Headliners Club space. Greeting and networking from 11:30-12:00, lunch served at noon and speaker will start at 12:15 with a brief Q&A near the end. Event ends at 1:00.
