An idea without execution is just that…an idea” I am driven by seeing great entrepreneurial spirits become realities and make a difference in the world. Being involved in the Israeli high tech industry for such a long time, I draw a lot of pride and energy from these ideas that turn into inseparable parts of our lives - memory on a stick, crowd based navigation system, autonomous vehicle technology, most advance Intel chips, a digestible pill that takes a video of your digestive system, and the list goes on and on. This is what I call excitement.
