Great question, Logan. The differentiating factor that AltX brings, apart from the sheer amount of data from every conceivable source, is the dual matching aspect. As an unbiased third party they can objectively analyze the massive data array and present investors with options. Based on my tolerance for risk and appetite for growth I can seamlessly view both fund managers and funds that match my needs. I believe, however, their is always a risk in over reliance on automation. In an increasingly digitized world, if AltX can remain relevant they have a chance to be a game changer.
Have not heard too much about Softbank’s operating model until now. It seems like they are very adept at outpacing the competition. It will be interesting to see what the next move is. Thanks for the post.
Big Reddit fan. It was interesting to me to learn they are in the red, although I was not really sure how they captured value. As more fans join I wonder if they will be able to support the community with the infrastructure that it requires–I assume yes.
Interesting post Midori, I would imagine that it would be incredibly difficult to translate a core competency that revolves around human interaction and a customer-centric focus–it seems that thus far they have been able to do it. As the mobile business scales, I wonder if they will be able to sustain the same level of satisfaction.
