Hi all,



I emailed Lou but it seems he already has a team.



Is anyone else interested in tackling this challenge in a team? I am looking for someone who already have some iphone experience. I am currently working in technology for Goldman and I have some experience with finance in general. I already have some ideas on what to build.



If you want to form a team please email me back!



Thanks,

Ray

I would like to do this.  It's a great excuse to learn something about finance.  One thing though, I have no idea what kind of app a financial professional needs!  I have experience building iphone apps, is there someone that knows a thing or two about finance that would like to team up?  Or, if you just have ideas with no intention of building, it would be great if you sent them to the list.



Thanks,

Lou
