A modern 401k provider to built for modern companies to set up and run your 401k entirely online.
Companies use Captain401 to set up a 401(k) plan for their employees online through a couple of simple steps. After that, the ongoing administration pulls data from HR software like Gusto and Intuit, and the service automatically manages investments for employees through index funds like those from Vanguard.
Captain401, a service that helps small businesses set up a 401k, is launching out of Y Combinator today. The goal of Captain401 is to make managing 401ks as simple as other services are for other functions within companies — and in a more digitally focused manner like Zenefits or Zenpayroll.
