On December 14, 2015, KSC commented on Transferwise – The money transfer revolution :

Loved the marketing #NothingtoHide marketing campaign. Their model definitely seems to strike a cord with customers who are sick and tired of the lack of transparency in the financial services institution. Totally agree that it’s about time for some major disruption. Excited to see how this all plays out. Check out my post on Azimo that is operating a similar model focused on serving immigrants send remittances abroad.

On December 14, 2015, KSC commented on TransferWise: Quicker and cheaper foreign exchange :

I didn’t realize that Transferwise created pools of currency in the countries that it operates in. Does this operational model have potential implications for the number of countries that Transferwise can operate in? Or is it already successfully operating in a wide range of countries across the world?

On December 14, 2015, KSC commented on Palantir: The Hottest Startup You’ve Never Heard Of :

Very interesting post! I’ve heard that some consulting firms now view Palantir as a major potential competitor given its unique data analytic capabilities. I wonder how the consulting industry might be disrupted and forced to adapt their business model to also deliver customized data analytic capabilities that Palantir is delivering.

Also the healthcare example presented in the video above is fascinating, but looking at Palantir’s website, it seems like the potential to apply their services can be infinite. I’m intrigued by the idea of applying Palantir’s technology in other areas such as crisis response and disaster preparedness.
