Iliana Montauk

Iliana's passion is untapping human potential. She previously bootstrapped the launch of the first startup accelerator in Gaza - literally during a war. While there, she increased women's participation in pipeline activities from 25% to 49% and ran the largest crowdfunding campaign in the Arab region. She has worked as a senior product manager managing talent at the largest talent marketplace in the world (Upwork) and at Google. She speaks 5 languages and is always trying to make better hummus.
