Prior to working for Hilo, she raised $2 million for ticket sales app, Tixr, and grew the company to $1 million in annual recurring revenue through her go-to-market guidance.

On top of her experience managing teams during the go-to-market phase, Monica has also built business partnerships for various companies since her early entry into mobile at Palm Inc and Handspring.

With Hilo, Monica applies her proven experience pioneering rapid startup growth to her valuable knowledge of the cryptocurrency space.

She realized there was no single helpful place for the crypto newbie to learn, discuss, and share about the future of money. Combining an unmatched understanding of the complex crypto market and her background in business development, compliance, and startup management, Monica founded Hilo in 2017.
