Aww maaaan this is the first I heard of the party!
Thought the range of questions asked was excellent.
The one point tom made that i didnt like was the… maybe a larger crowdfund round next year
Personally thought with the main aim of being profitable next year that this may have been the last crowdfund round needed hence why i invested
Monzo might become profitable in the UK, but need extra funding to finance expansion to Mainland Europe or the USA in 2020.
The biggest thing I took from the Q&A is that Monzo aren’t at the point of trying to do everything for everyone, at least at the moment. Realistically, this had to be the case for financial reason alone but it was good to hear it said clearly and distinctly.
The point about multi-currency accounts from Tom, for example, really made that clear
While such an account sounds a good idea, truth be told most people including myself would not make a lot of use of one across the year
Great Q&A. Much learned from watching the stream. Bring on 2019!
Do we know how they chose who to invite to the Christmas party? Seems like a lot of active members had no idea…
The Monzo Community's 2018 Christmas Wish List!
I don’t think it was invite only. Standard Eventbrite sign up like the open offices, I think.
Aren’t those usually advertised on here though?
Not always. I’ve found the publicity around office events a bit inconsistent, tbh. I usually find them through the events channel on Slack…
