Why debate when we can test?

Going in, I had about ten hypotheses as to what holds women back from investing. Each of the ten was as strongly held as the other ten. My team and I committed to testing each of them – my new mantra is “Why debate something when we can test it?” We started down one road – that women would want to learn about their investing style before investing – and changed course quickly when the women told us that was not the case. Also nixed: that women would want to be part of an investing community. So we won’t launch by the new year, but we strongly believe co-creating this platform with the women themselves will drive a much, much better product and experience.
