"From Nordau to NASDAQ" with IT Innovator Roni Einav (Updated 10/9/12)
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm, Monday, October 15 (2012), Mary Graydon Room 4
KSB "IT Innovators" lecture by Israeli high-tech entrepreneur Roni Einav, co-author of Nordau to NASDAQ.
One of the most prominent of Israel’s tech entrepreneurs, Roni Einav founded 25 tech ventures in the last 35 years, including New Dimension Software which was one of the first Israeli tech startups to go public on NASDAQ and which was acquired soon after for $673 million in 1999. Other ventures included Liraz Computers (trading on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, TASE), Jacada (NASDAQ), Axxana, CrediView, CeDimension, ComDa, Einav Computer Systems, M-Photo, and Eurekify (was acquired by US-based Computer Associates).
Einav serves on the board of directors of two public companies: ClickSoftware (NASDAQ) and Advantec (TASE), and on the advisory board of Xenia, an Incubator for high tech ventures, which is also a public company (TASE). He has taught classes in entrepreneurship and venture capital at the Technion and Afeka College.
In 2009 he wrote a book about his tech entrepreneurship experiences, “Nordau to NASDAQ.” The title derives from the two locations representing the starting point and the climax of his professional life. Nordau is the name of a well-known street in leafy old Tel Aviv where he grew up ... and NASDAQ for Israeli Technorati is the top of the summit.
