You Are Blind Without Analytics

So you’ve got a great product that you’ve been working on for a while, now you want to launch it and win the jackpot. How will you know if it rocks, sucks or is totally ignored by your customers? You must have analytics! And when I say analytics I mean in every part of your product – the website, web application and mobile app – you must have the ability to analyze and understand how a user reacts when using […]

Are You Afraid of Speaking In Another Language? READ THIS!

Splash news: my mother language is Hebrew. In the past few years, however, I’ve needed to speak English almost daily with board members, customers, and other entrepreneurs. I admit, I have tried to avoid it as much as possible. I was afraid of sounding silly or of not being understandable to the other side. In every situation, I thought, “Thank god my partner is an American; he can handle all the English conversations.” But then one day, two years ago, […]

Be Social And I Don’t Mean By Clicking On LIKE In Facebook

Yesterday I attended a fundraising review for a startup. During the presentation I just wanted to pull my hair out because of the rudeness and inconsiderate attitude of the guy who gave the presentation: I was amazed how that guy reacted during the whole presentation. For example, he commented on the size of his team, which seemed to have too many people without clear positions. Then he rolled his eyes, gave a look of cancellation and his short and immediate […]

It’s All About Location, Location And Location

Today as I was walking down the street, I suddenly came across an old friend who was looking to join a start-up as technical co-founder. An hour earlier, I had met an entrepreneur who was searching for that exact type of person. The result? A perfect match and a lasting business partnership (or possibly a business disaster, followed by me getting yelled at by my old friend…). After meeting that guy, I was a ten-minute walk from my house when […]

What am I Doing Here?

Regardless, I will strive to make my insights practical and will, with the help of your feedback, try to use them in my everyday life. A few guidelines that I’ll keep in […]

Who Am I?

The long and boring answer: I have been working on turning ideas into products for over 12 years, with tons of technology, security and management experience. I take the term “hands-on” and makes sure to apply it in my day-to-day work. I have been developing products since the age of 12, and have been involved in many start-ups since. By the age of 17, I made my way in to the world of entrepreneurship and started a consulting business which […]
