PALO ALTO, Calif. –– April 26, 2022 –– Step, the all-in-one financial solution for the next generation, today announced an exclusive partnership with Caleb McLaughlin. Best known for his role as “Lucas Sinclair” on Netflix’s hit show Stranger Things, the 20-year-old is also a talented musician, budding entrepreneur and passionate philanthropist who was recently named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List.
