In Ilana’s own words – “I was leaping in my career continuously. Air Force → Engineer →Technical Sales → Product Manager → VP Technical Operations… I decided to start a tech company with a friend. We raised $800,000! I was so excited. I thought I was living the dream. I told everyone about this company-in-the-making. And then, my co-founder decided to take the money and kick me out of the business.”
