I'm Laura Del Beccaro, cofounder & CEO of Sora.
We started Sora 3 years ago to automate as many of the tedious parts of HR as possible, allowing People teams to focus on important initiatives and empowering them to create exceptional employee experiences.
In those three years, we’ve raised over $20M, hired a diverse team of 22 people, and helped dozens of People teams save thousands of hours.
We focus a ton on our internal culture because I believe that everything we do (and will do in the future) stems from it. If we make a great product, it will be because of a culture of caring about our customers, being inclusive of everyone’s ideas and working together well, and hiring/keeping amazing people. If we sell a ton of our software, it will be because of a culture of collaboration and a genuine focus on our customers. I obsess over culture — the very first thing I did when starting Sora was write down values — and every single month, 100% of Sora employees report that they would recommend it as a great place to work :)
Prior to Sora, I was a Software Engineer at First Round, where I got to meet a ton of early-stage founders and learn from their journeys — emotionally, mentally, financially, etc. I also spent several years at Mixpanel as a Sales Engineer and then Software Engineer.
Ask me anything about building culture / creating an amazing employee experience at a company of any size, scaling HR & People Ops, launching a company, raising money, my founder journey, or anything else you can think of!
