Uri has been working in the tech industry for the last 30 years, and on the start-up scene for the last 15 years.
He is a passionate serial entrepreneur and disruptor. His greatest business successes come in the form of applications aimed at overcoming the inefficiency that affects us daily and making people’s lives easier. Waze, his mapping and navigation app, enables users (more than 200M drivers around the globe) to avoid traffic jams. Google acquired Waze in June 2013 for more than $1.1 billion.
After Waze, Uri co-founded FeeX, a free online tool that helps users find and reduce the fees in their investment accounts. He is active chairman there.
Uri focuses on consumer services – he is a co-founder and board member in half a dozen startups (like Moovit, Engi and Fairfly), as well as an active angel investor in several companies.
A true entrepreneur who studied Economics at the University of Tel Aviv, he has worked in all possible areas of business, including product development, marketing, business development, running start-ups and providing coaching to CEOs.
