How do you know when you're a leader?

For those unfamiliar with our story, our upstart company Taulia decided to tackle a global economic inefficiency by changing the way large companies, smaller companies and financial institutions work with one another. Everyone thought we were nuts – a start-up trying to fix the world economy?  

We did it anyway.

Over the last 5 years, we built a suite of sophisticated products, recruited a brilliant team, raised capital, and signed a number of the world's biggest companies as customers.  Now, several hundred billion dollars of spend flows across our platform and more members of the Global 2000 are choosing Taulia as their solution of choice than any other vendor.They don't think we're nuts anymore.

But we weren’t satisfied with just making a dent; we set out to be the leaders in our space. Which of course raises a question – how do you know when you're a leader?

Personally, I think John Q had it right -- leaders generate followers. So, one has to ask themselves: Does your company inspire followers?

Taulia gets my vote as the leader in this space, and I think John Q would agree with me.
