Achievements (products built, personal awards won):

I have designed and built joystick control system for Dagan field sprayer, to control boom on the fly.
I've design and built line marker for the ma'a'gan seed-bed field-implementer. This design has resulted in significant improvements to seed-bed alignment, and consequently to reduced loss of seed-bed area.

Despite the fact that I have not completed elementary school, I have managed to excel in the fields of architectural and product design as well as business development for the software industry - both require considerable education.

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

The most frustrating is watching the horizon getting further as I move forward - always more to do.
The most rewarding is knowing that this journey never ends - always more to do.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make?

Complicating things.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

Do your best - what you think of yourself is more important then what others think of you.
No matter how simple you make it, it can always be simpler.
When a problem seems too difficult, get some sleep.

Full bio

From young age I had designed and built things. Before I was 10 I have designed and built Mad-Max style arrow weapons and Go-Carts. Growing up on a kibbutz, I had the opportunity to take machines apart, see what's inside, then put them back together in all sorts of ways.

Over the years I had the opportunity to design, build, and implement solutions for the agriculture, architecture and software development industries.
I have extensive experience in sales and business development as well as substantial truck record in project management in a variety of industries.

In the past I have worked for two technology companies heading their business development efforts - XLT and StudioGPU. During that time I was building relationships with companies such as AMD, DreamWorks and nVidia.

Before that I have worked primarily in the architectural design and construction management industry as a designer, supervisor and sales associate. I was contracted by leading studios such as the Studio of Eric Lloyd Wright, and led the design departments of Studio Imago and The XL Art Group.
