Awesome read Tina! It’s extraordinary how Venmo has grown over the past few years and how as you said, has become a verb synonymous with paying people back. I do wonder about its future through. I see Apple Pay and Google Wallet as considerable threats as they hold the capital to scale and have consumer trust already on their side. Plus, I wonder if people are growing a bit more cautious about making payments to friends a social experience, as some people may value privacy more than convenience or the social factor.
Very interesting read Jeremy! I also had the same concern as Alice above – how engaged can you keep employees if they are being held accountable remotely? I wonder if there are any mechanisms to keep employees honest or perhaps a monetary incentive to make sure people are meeting their goals. Another thought I had is on the sustainability of Retrofit’s business. You’re right, I feel like missing the boat on millennials will be a huge risk. There are tons of weight loss/health mobile apps already live, so Retrofit will have to bring some sort of significant competitive edge for when they ultimately do launch an app. Thanks for your post!
