What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Analysis

An estimated 1.7 billion adults lack an account at a financial institution or through a mobile money provider.

Tala seeks to address this problem, with a new way to predict who will be likely to repay loans,through analyzing the phone use patterns of borrowers, all without needing a credit score or history.

With over $100M in new capital in late 2019 from world class investors (Chris Sacca, IVP, Paypal Ventures), they are working through plans to enter the Indian Market and other new areas across Asia and the Americas,which makes this a great time to learn how a company expands a working model globally.

The playbook has been honed since their founding in 2011, and they lent over $1 billion dollars to more than four million customers in the past year.

One concern to be aware of is there has been a high turnover on the executive team . Kevin Novak (Chief Data Officer), Johnny Lee (CTO) and Jon Blackwell (CPO) all left in 2018.
