Erik is joined by Howard Lindzon (@howardlindzon), GP at Social Leverage and co-founder and chairman of StockTwits, and Sheel Mohnot (@pitdesi), FinTech investor at 500 Startups. They discuss: - Which spaces they’re most excited about within FinTech. - How the space has evolved over the last decade or so. - Why it’s a very difficult and crowded space to try to build a company in (hint: “CACs are ridonculous”). - Their takes on crypto and its future. - Why incumbents like Google and Amazon have done a poor job in FinTech. - Why Howard likes companies that have “weird angles of attack” into a market. - Their thoughts on ISAs.
