He learned all about how not to sink a company by not sinking the ship he was commanding in his IDF service.

To this day, he tells us, he implements lessons he learned from that ship in FeeX.

About FeeX

FeeX call themselves “the Robin Hood of fees”, and after saving their users over $300M and counting, they can definitely get away with that title.

“FeeX’s story began when I realized I was a sucker”, says Waze co-founder, Uri Levine.

His wake-up call came in the form of a finance report notifying him he lost 30% of his savings, plus a management fee worth thousands of dollars.

When Levin called the finance company handling his money and complained they agreed to cancel the management fee, and that’s when he realized something in the finance industry needed a fix, or a FeeX.

The result? A free service that finds and helps users reduce fees in their IRA, 401(k), 403(b), brokerage and other investment-type accounts, thus allowing them to retire with more for themselves.

Users just need to upload a scan of one of the supported financial reports and receive investment recommendations for similar funds with lower fees.

To this date, FeeX has raised $9.6M in investments. But for their users, they have “raised” much much more.
