On episode 64 I talk with Lily Liu, Founder & CEO of Piñata. Piñata®, the reward and credit building program for renters, lets you earn rewards, save on everyday expenses and boost your credit score for a sweeter rental experience.
The rental market is changing. There is still a large segment that wants to own a home eventually, but more people than ever before want flexibility.
Piñata comes in and helps them get credit for the rent they're paying. Piñata reports rental payments to the bureaus and offers rewards so renters can shop or save.
Lily and I discuss some of the misconceptions about renters, the credit scoring system, her time politics, the psychology behind rewards for renters, raising capital, surfing, and a whole lot more.
Without further ado, I present Lily Liu, Founder & CEO of Piñata. I hope you enjoy the episode.
