A first-time founder realizes her vision, even after losing a co-founder.
After college, Eliza Blank longed for a greener life — the concrete jungle wasn’t cutting it. She went to the basement (yes, basement) of Home Depot to look for plants and thought, There must be a better way.
She developed her idea for The Sill in a pre-Instagram generation and she’s pretty much responsible for turning you into a plant parent. But it wasn’t all easy growth — her co-founder left after a few months, leaving Eliza to make her plant dreams happen on her own. Spoiler alert: She did it.
