about
Gillian

Gillian began her entrepreneurship journey during her time at NYU, where she studied undergrad while interning and consulting with various startups. Upon graduation, she took a marketing role with a boutique fashion brand before deciding to leave to start her own business. The startup, Cherry, was admitted to Y Combinator and raised around $1M in total funding before eventually closing down at the onset of the pandemic. Gillian went on to become the Chief of Staff at YC S19 company, Dover, before taking her current role as Founder-in-Residence at Pilot.com (a bookkeeping startup valued at over 1B).

Gillian is an expert in storytelling — using the close down of her company to propel her forward into bigger and better roles. Along the way, she's been written about in Forbes, invited to speak at universities like UC Berkeley and UC San Diego, and hired as a guest lecturer at On Deck, Plug and Play, Free Ventures, and more. Her essays on her founder journey have amassed 10s of thousands of views.
