Free On-Demand Webinar: How to Lead Through Times of Economic Uncertainty
Transparency and simplicity about the credit industry, especially in a world of financial uncertainty, is exactly what Kenneth Lin’s goal was when he launched Credit Karma in 2007. The platform is best known for providing free credit scores. It offers everything a person needs to reach their financial goals, including identity monitoring, credit card and loan applications. Now an Intuit (NASDAQ: INTU) company, Credit Karma serves over 120 million people across the U.S., U.K., and Canada – including almost half of all U.S. millennials. In the next Leadership Lessons episode, Lin talks with series host Jason Nazar about how he’s led the company from a team of three to 1,500 employees. Other topics include:
The road less traveled: Acquisition over IPO–why IPO isn’t the only exit to consider
Learning lessons: 2008 recession and 2020 pandemic
