  • I thought colored credit cards were innovation ;-). You could argue that many of the “Challenger Banks” aren’t just digital versions of banks and not “challengers” in the typical startup sense of trying to break the wheel. Obviously regulations and other factors may prevent massive changes, but we definitely need to do better. Agree with Theodora on Aspiration in terms of trying to do something “different” than the rest.
