Rishi Khanna, Stocktwits

Second, how we doin’, friends?
Whew! How about that week?! Not the easiest one we’ve had in a while with the Affirm news and the general uneasiness in the air.
In that vein, if anyone was impacted by the Affirm news or any other RIFs recently, please reach out. I’d be happy to connect you to where I can.
Back to our normally scheduled programming…
This week’s episode was a fun one! I sat down with Rishi Khanna, CEO of Stocktwits, to discuss how the company came to be, his experience as CEO, and the challenges within maintaining Stocktwits' unique brand and voice through hypergrowth. Not easy!
Rishi also shares some insights on the Hedge Fund world, how New York City shaped him into the man he is today, and finally, we ask Rishi the burning question that’s been on every Fintech nerd's mind: Could Stocktwits ever work with Crypto without turning into a stew of hatred and bitcoin maxis lashing at all those around them?
Not to mention, squirrel chasing and coining the term New Yorkian in the first few minutes. WE MOVE FAST AROUND HERE, FOLKS! Adding value right and left!
