HIGHLIGHTING FINTECH LEADERS

OUR INTERVIEW WITH KRISTEN ANDERSON

A special thank you to everyone that attended NY FinTech Week last month. We’re thrilled to be returning this Spring, so mark your calendars for April 19 2022.

This week I sat down with THE Kristen Anderson to talk product, culture of entrepreneurship, and vegas dance parties. Kristen, hot off the heels of her company’s series A, recently relocated her family to Gotham from my favorite NYC suburb, Boston.

Kristen is the co-founder & CEO of Catch, the go-to solution for freelance, contract, gig, and hourly workers who want control and ownership of their benefits. Before the tryptophan takes over, you’ll want to check this one out.

YOUR BOSS ASKED YOU TO COME UP WITH A LIST OF THE CONFERENCES YOU SHOULD ATTEND? WE DID THAT FOR YOU!
