NOTE: Are you working on a startup you'd like to discuss with me? I'd love to hear - but please, no LinkedIn mails. Please email hello@lool.vc, or, even better, get an intro through someone I know and respect. If you do opt to use LinkedIn mail for this, I'll try to answer it, but do expect a longer delay. Thanks!

I've been building software products that people use since 1989.

That's long enough to make a lot of mistakes in many diverse fields - product, technological, managerial, organizational, inter-personal.

Hopefully I've also learned a lesson or two on the way.

I am now passionate about putting these lessons to good use, helping build companies @ internet speed through lool ventures.

Named one of the Top-40 Israeli Internet Startup Professionals by TheMarker Magazine in 2008. Mentor for up-and-coming high school students with StartupSeeds.

Prior to lool ventures, I served as CTO for Yedda, now AOL Answers, an AOL company. I've co-founded Yedda on 2006 (acquired by AOL on 2007). Previously, I was VP R&D at SmarTeam, acquired on 1999 by Dassault Systems (DASTY). Before that, I was chief architect in a software unit in the Intelligence Corps \ IDF, where I built a distributed Geographical Information Systems. Prior that, back in the early days of the Web, I've worked for HyperAct, an Internet startup company that created tools for web development, web based e-learning and hypertext viewing and authoring.

I hold a Bachelor degree in Computer Science from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.

Specialties: Some of the areas in which I was fortunate enough to be allowed to make mistakes:

* Software Dev., Product Dev., Quality Assurance, Product Definition, Product Management, Online marketing (social & traditional), Content, Analytics & BI

* Managing big & small teams in multi-national corporations spanning multiple locations

* Funding startup companies
