Raysana is an innovator that leads transformation with empathy. She began her career at AlleyCorp, which founds and funds companies in New York. There she developed experience in building startups such as Gilt Groupe, an online retailer for designer labels. She then went on to learn how products are made by managing global supply chains for several fashion brand and brought products from conception to reality.
In 2016, Raysana was able to get back into the startup world as a creator focused on her passion to innovate the education space and challenge the status quo. Her family has been the inspiration to follow her passions of innovating education, serving the underserved, and fulfilling her restless desire to learn. She struggled through the traditional education system, which delayed her love for learning, but made her a master problem solver. This is why she wants to give everyone the opportunity to love learning and the access to a great education. Her mother always said “education is the one thing no one can take away from you”. She was right.
Currently, Raysana is a Senior Product Manager of software for Emerging IoT Technology at Intel Corporation. She joined Intel in 2017 through the Accelerated Leadership Program and held product and strategy roles in Education and Industrial IoT.
