User Journeys


“I use this app regularly. Look how easy it is to make an investment into myself! As easy as paying for a cup of coffee, I can pay myself that same amount in a couple of clicks and see what my weekly activity is."


“I heard this was a great app to quickly invest micro-amounts of money. I have $5 so let’s get right to it!”


“I am not sure what risk tolerance means; with $5, does it matter? I want to see a chart showing the growth of a small investment—maybe with a small amount of cash I would be willing to be more risky.”
