Playing the Long Game (With Finix's Richie Serna)
Play • 53 min

Richie Serna doesn't take no for an answer.

After hearing that he shouldn't study computer science because he hadn't been studying it since he was 10, that he shouldn't go to a better high school because he wouldn't stand out, and that he didn't have the skill set to succeed in the tech world, Richie graduated from Harvard University, taught himself how to code, and started his own financial tech company in San Francisco.

Now 6 years into his work with Finix, Richie reflects on the early days and shares his experiences playing the long game as an underrepresented individual in the tech world.
