CEO Eynat Guez thrust her Tel Aviv–based payroll-management software company into the spotlight in January, when it withdrew about $100 million from Israeli banks to protest Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to overhaul the judiciary. Other firms joined in. “If you decide to lead something, you need to be brave enough to say your opinion out loud,” Guez says. Her $3.7 billion company knows how to move money in 160 countries. Cross-border payments have long been slow and arduous, but with a growing slate of money-transfer licenses and a new partnership with JPMorgan Chase, Papaya Global helps companies with global workforces—including Toyota and Microsoft—quickly pay employees wherever they live.
