Would you do it? I would.
My research shows that they are more focused on launching these smaller investment clubs (university or company alums).
Their demand gen strategy is around startup investing — they have a ton of content about that! What I feel like I missing are case studies.

Will be interesting to see how PIN navigates its competition — but I’d think that most of the risk might come from users having an interest in launching an investment club.
