Personal finance, engineered for
business owners.

Ocho is a financial platform designed to help business owners like you manage your finances more effectively. Our platform includes financial education from the world’s leading money experts and intuitive retirement plans, such as our IRAs and Solo 401k.
All of these features are included in one simple membership.

Do you ever feel like you’re so busy working ON your business that it’s hard to find the time to focus on mastering your finances?

Maybe you’ve been thinking things like…

“I know that I need to setup my retirement and investment accounts but I’m worried that I’ll make a mistake and end up losing money or the process will take forever

“I know I should be taking my finances more seriously, but I don’t even know where to start

“I feel stuck, overwhelmed, and procrastinate because it feels like everyone else is MILES ahead of me when it comes to understanding money”

“It seems like there are so many strategies and tips that I SHOULD know but I don’t have the fancy accountants or lawyers to point me in the right direction”

What entrepreneurs say about using Ocho

Nate O’Brien Investor & YouTuber
“The process of opening a solo 401k used to be extremely complex, and you had to do most of the administration work yourself. Ocho has built the modern version of the plan, adding in all the best features and offering full administration support. I don’t normally get excited about retirement plans, but Ocho is building something I’ve wanted to exist for a long time.”
User: Ocho Solo 401k Plan
Sebastian Fung Owner, Ask Sebby
“Ocho is the most intuitive solo 401k experiences I’ve tried. I love how you can get set up and invest in just a few minutes. Every business owner, creator, and self-employed person should have one. The benefits and tax savings each year are a no-brainer.”

Ocho was started by entrepreneurs who understand how difficult it can be when you’re starting to learn how to operate, manage, and maximize your finances.

We’ve learned a lot of lessons the hard way, and now have access to incredible mentors and want to make learning about finances accessible.

Meet some of the founders

Jess Catorc


Jess Catorc, a co-founder at Ocho, is an award-winning brand strategist that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs and startups expand their reach and revenue online. Supporting entrepreneurs has been at the core of her mission and she’s seen that it’s often not the “idea” that makes or breaks a business but rather their understanding of finances. This inspired her to start creating content for business owners and joining Ocho to continue these efforts.

Ankur Nagpal


After selling his last startup, Teachable, Ankur learned a lot about money he didn’t know as a first-generation immigrant and entrepreneur, including tax & estate planning strategies. He began Tweeting about his learnings, and it resonated with so many entrepreneurs who were hungry for this information, but also found it difficult to access. This led him to start Ocho to make personal and business finance strategies attainable and accessible for everyone.

Ocho is created specifically FOR business owners, and all the training and platform were created with you in mind.

We know just how hard it is to find the information you need or find advice that’s specifically for business owners.

Not to mention, it’s a challenge in itself to sift through the information, translate overly complicated jargon, know what steps you need to take, or what your best option actually is for your situation.

Ocho will simplify money and allow you to use it to create the life you want because you’ll finally uncover and understand all the possibilities you had never considered before.
