Who we are


Phil Fremont-Smith

Co-founder, CEO

Phil had the idea for ImpulseSave while watching his daughter’s soccer game. After getting distracted by a deal notification on his phone, it hit him: you can spend your money easily, from anywhere. Why can’t saving be just as simple and fun?

Prior to ImpulseSave Phil helped launch and grow 2 early stage start-ups:, a SaaS CRM and Consumer Lead Generation service serving the Banking, Mortgage and Insurance industries; and, a SaaS technology solution helping businesses in the US and Europe scale their accounting and technology capabilities.

Phil holds an MBA from MIT where he was a Sloan Fellow, and a BA from Boston College. He studied Choral and Orchestral Conducting at the University College Cork, Ireland, and continues to compose and conduct original choral and orchestral works.


John Mileham

Co-founder, CTO

Before ImpulseSave, John was the CTO of Berkleemusic, Berklee College of Music’s award-winning online music school and professional musicians’ network, which he and his team built from the ground up.

John grew up in Milwaukee, where he started developing web apps professionally, while still in high school, well before Google existed. An avid musician, he went to music school for two years before dropping out to build cutting edge web apps with ArsDigita, a web shop in Cambridge, MA.

Armed with his experiences and having worked with some of the most talented people in the industry, John has straddled development, design and management roles for more than a decade and stays at the forefront of practices and technologies, actively contributing code to open source projects such as Ruby on Rails.
