Across the globe, there are 1.7 billion Muslims, second only to Christianity at 2.3 billion. This represents a huge opportunity. Today's guest is Indra Wiralaksmana, co-founder and CEO of Umma. Umma is a Muslim community based platform. It's part social network, part content aggregator, but designed specifically for the needs of people who consider themselves Muslim.
A trained accountant with a background in consulting, Indra and I discuss his journey from Jakarta to the US and back to Jakarta. How he transitioned from accounting to startup country manager and ultimately how he made the leap from private equity to startup founder.
Thanks for listening. Feel free to drop me feedback or intervew suggestions on Twitter, @jessebouman.
