Hacking Resilience by Celebrating Small Wins — with Laura Spiekerman
In 2015, Alloy’s empath founders saw the need to speed up the payment rails to improve financial services onboarding. With funding assistance as a Techstars Barclays Accelerator grad, they developed an identity operating system that banks and FinTechs use to manage their AML/KYC operations and fraud detection.
The key to founder resilience, as Laura explains, is to focus on “the little things that are going well and celebrate them” and to share those wins with your team.
Listen for Laura’s story about starting with a robust solution to an industry-wide problem and, with the help of savvy advisors, an evolving product and a strong company culture, building it into a successful enterprise that investors want to be part of.
