Today’s guest is Adena Hefets, CEO & Co-Founder of Divvy Homes. She grew up in Long Island, New York to immigrant parents who lived paycheck to paycheck, and were not financially stable, and this drove her ambition to be financially independent at a very young age.
She would go on to work in lots of finance roles like investment banking, private equity, venture capital, and also worked in product management, before starting Divvy Homes with her cofounders. In 2016, Adena started Divvy Homes with two other co-founders with a mission to make home ownership accessible to everyone. Today, Divvy has raised almost $300 million in funding, and is changing the world of real estate.
