Full bio

Yoav has been a successful tech entrepreneur and investor for the past two decades.  YL Ventures, which he founded, invests early in core-technology software companies in and around the Internet, and accelerates their evolution via value-added involvement and Silicon Valley-based business development. 

Yoav currently serves on the boards of two YL Ventures portfolio companies: ClickTale (customer experience analytics) and Upstream Commerce (automated competitive pricing and product analytics), and is the lead investor of Seculert (security-as-a-service).  Yoav served on the board of AcceloWeb (browser experience optimization) until it was acquired by Limelight Networks.

Yoav was the CEO and cofounder of Movota (mobile software) acquired by Bertelsmann, the CTO and cofounder of ExchangePath (online payments) acquired by CMGI, and the CEO and cofounder of PcEnterntainer Magazine.  Yoav was also an associate at DFJ Gotham Ventures, studied at IMD, and holds an MBA from Columbia University.
