Julie Bort - September 2017
At just 24 years old, Khallil Mangalji had made a successful name for himself. Following a round of venture funding for his two-year-old startup, he closed out with $1.8 million. He secured this funding, all while undergoing treatment for cancer.
Together with two of his friends, Mangalji created an app called Fiix, bringing mechanics straight to consumers' homes. He and his partners worked hard and were completely committed to their project. When the news about Mangalji's cancer was shared, his partners doubled down and provided the support he needed. After a bit of a roller coaster ride, with a remission, and then a recurrence, Mangalji is now in remission and enjoying continued success from his company. As he states, "There were times when I couldn't eat enough, or couldn't stand, and I didn't have the freedom to work on Fiix. But in times like now, when we can work on Fiix, it's a luxury."
