Startups Best Practices

Screen Shot 2013-03-12 at 10.22.07 AMIn the past 18 years I’ve started six companies (the last cool one is HighGearMedia). In this talk, I shared some of the best practices that I learned the hard way. There are few aspects that I did my best to covered, from technology to design to following your dreams with the best tools you can allow yourself in a certain point in time. In the slides, there is a section that is devoted to Campus TLV and what is the role (as I see it) of a mentor that works with startups on a daily bases. If you are going to visit the Campus in the future, please don’t be a stranger.
There are many more aspects for building a new company. I guess, one of the most critical success factor is finding the right partners and share the load of the work. It’s one of those ‘easy to say hard to do’ things but this is part of the fun.
Good luck!

Google Campus TLV Is Open!

Campus TLVToday we (Google Israel) are opening Campus TLV. It’s going to be a great place for entrepreneurs and startups in Israel. We are going to have a big space for events, hackathons and a nice device library (so you could test you mobile apps on all the important devices out there). If you are starting a company and/or working on your idea, you could checkout the Campus site and see what event/meetup will be best for you. The Campus space will be used by developers, start-ups and partners for events, and entrepreneurs will get access to Google’s teams and other experts. We’re also working with tech incubators, accelerator programs and other partners to bring their start-ups to Campus for an initiative called “Launch Pad.” It’s a two-week “bootcamp” for more than 100 start-ups each year, aimed at enhancing existing accelerator programs by providing expertise in user experience and design, product strategy, global marketing, business development and more.
