Head in the Cloud | Gil Friedrich from Avanan

Gil Friedrich was in the process of completing his graduate degree when he sheepishly asked his professor if he could look for a job and finish his thesis on the side. His professor immediately offered Gil a position at a tech startup he was founding.

This began Gil’s career, which eventually led him into the field of cybersecurity and his own startup, Avanan, which offers an enterprise solution for cloud email and collaboration security.

On this edition of Founders Journey, Gil talks about the many transitions he’s made in his life—from soldier to student, from student to coder, from coder to VP of R&D, and now founder and CEO.
