Christina Ross is the founder and CEO of Cube, the first spreadsheet-native financial planning and analysis (FP&A) platform that delivers a delightfully frictionless experience by letting you keep what you love about spreadsheets and automating what you don’t. Prior to Cube, Christina held head of finance roles at Rent the Runway, Criteo, and Eyeview.
This episode is hosted by Jenny Fielding, co-founder and general partner of Everywhere Ventures (previously The Fund). In this interview, Jenny and Christina dive into a range of headaches and headways in the finance department, including how a failed implementation project led to the creation of Cube. Learn how to get real feedback when you’re starting a company, and hear how the principles of simplicity and building connectors in the early days enabled solving complex problems in an elegant manner. Listen carefully for Christina’s tips on closing sales and her favorite toy as a kid!
