I'm passionate about music, Judo (check out my blog) and chess. On my free time, I try to make a living...

Formally an engineer in the semi-conductor industry (Intel, Cadence), an 11 years period during which, I've finished my MBA from Bar-Ilan University. Finally, I've decided that the time has come to jump into the abyss of entrepreneurship.

After a few "low-tech" businesses, I switched back to high tech with Mockitoo; a platform for generating instant casual FLASH games for web and Android OS.

In mid 2011, I've founded Folloyu; a cross-device continuity platform for increasing online consumers' retention and conversion rates by allowing them seamlessly switch devices while in the middle of activity (shopping, gaming, financial trading etc.).

In early 2014, I founded a bitcoin-related startup called Polycoin which brings a disruptive solution to the crypto-currency payments system, that allows regulated financial businesses, a proper AML/KYC compliance.

Originally from Moldova (former USSR). Now, living in Israel with my gorgeous wife and wonderful two kids.
