Featured interview: Papaya CEO Eynat Guez
First Move with Julia Chatterley
Mar 28, 2023

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has paused controversial plans to overhaul the country's judicial system. His proposals have divided the country and sparked weeks of protests and widespread strikes. They've also prompted a backlash from Israel's vibrant tech sector, most notably Papaya Global, which is one of Israel's most successful startups. Its HR and payroll platforms are used in over 160 different countries, and it has a valuation of $3.7 billion. But in January Papaya CEO Eynat Guez moved the company's funds out of Israel, blaming the uncertain business climate on political instability. And she's now urging her peers to do the same. She joins Julia to discuss. 

Also on today's show: Economist Mohamed El-Erian gives us his take on the recent crisis in the banking sector.
