Surrounded by an entrepreneurial atmosphere (after all it is a “Startup Nation”), he started doing small businesses since he was 12.During his time in the army he commanded an infantry unit and learned the value of leading as opposed to commanding. After his release, he went for a long backpacking trip the world over and visited over 10 countries in 2 years. He learned new cultures and the differences in the ways those cultures interact with each other.It was only natural for him to decide to study for his bachelor’s degree while in Europe. While studying he worked for a multinational pharmaceutical company but after 2 years, deciding he wanted to do it his own way, and established his first company, a bio-tech company. In the same year he also established a restaurant that later became a small chain.Excelling in his MBA studies, he received a scholarship to study at Goizueta Business School (Emory). Not wasting any time, he created a wide network within the school and outside of it to prepare for the next big thing.After establishing SocialBox with his two partners: Itai Peer and Avner Moratt, he quickly pushed forward to bring SocialBox to the attention of the big corporations. Currently working with companies such as Sun Trust, Kinder Care and Philips Arena.
