I am lucky. I took one of my favorite hobbies - investing in smart, talented, motivated and passionate entrepeneurs - and turned it into a job I love. I am today an angel investor and (in some cases) co-founder in many start ups in Israel, San Francisco and London. I spend my time working with my portfolio companies and meeting new, innovative start ups, mostly in the consumer Internet, gaming, mobile, e-commerce and SaaS spaces.
Till mid 2011 I served as the CEO of 888 Holdings (LSE: 888.L), one of the world’s leading online gaming entertainment companies in the world, where I learned a lot about the Internet world. Prior to 888 I worked for Amdocs, a world leading software provider and systems integrators for the Telecom market (NYSE: DOX), where my last position was Division President managing Amdocs’ activity in Europe (except Eastern Europe), Central and Latin America.
Earlier in my career, I held several management roles in technology companies and was an airforce pilot before entering the business world.
I hold an MBA from the Kellogg school of management in the Northwestern University and am involved with a variety of amazing non for profit organizations in Israel including Latet, MEET and othes.
