200 TechAviv founders and investors got together to learn from each other. Like any good 10 year-old startup, we experimented. This time with two new formats:
1. TechAviv Founder Stories - A new fireside chat series diving into the untold, uncensored personal journeys of our most bold and successful founders. The unicorn builders. The idea is to inspire fellow Israeli founders to dream much, much bigger. First up is one of our founding members, Micha Kaufman, Founder & CEO at Fiverr. We'll discuss the challenges he faced and the tactics and strategy he deployed to overcome them on the way to building one of the most successful marketplaces in history.
2. TechAviv Boardroom - Imagine what you could learn being a fly on the wall at another CEO's board meeting. This month Nadav Shoval of Spot.IM and mock board members Gili Raanan (Sequoia), Tal Morgenstern (Lightspeed), Eran Shir (Nexar) and Micha Kaufman (Fiverr) discuss Spot.IM's real company updates, challenges and ways to optimize growth.
