Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso

Building a purpose-driven company (and culture) with Shivani Siroya

May 22, 2019

When Shivani Siroya founded Tala, she had a simple mission: To help overcome the barrier to accessing credit lines that people in developing economies face. Enter Tala, a finance and technology company that provides microloans and other financial services via its mobile app to people in countries like Kenya, Mexico, and the Philippines. And with billions of people around the world without a readily accessible “financial identity,” Tala has quickly grown from a small team of 4 to an international company with more than 500 employees. In this episode, Girlboss COO Neha Gandhi chats with Siroya about how she scaled Tala into an international team who work with a shared sense of purpose. You'll learn why Tala gives out “peer bonuses,” why competition is a good thing, and why a little obsession readies you for success.To learn more about Tala, go to--> https://tala.co/ Keep up to date with Shivani Siroya on Twitter by following her at --> https://twitter.com/shivsiroya
