TechAviv July 2013 | Founder Stories: Wix CEO Avishai Abrahami

This month we continue our Founder Stories series with a fireside chat with Wix founder & CEO Avishai Abrahami.

With last month's exciting news that Wix is gearing up for a US IPO, there's no better time to learn from and be inspired by the story of one of Israel's greatest Internet success stories, and the man at its helm. The vision, decisions and courage to lead Wix from near death to the world’s leading do-it-yourself web publishing platform used by 34 Million people is something you won't want to miss.

Avishai is a true serial entrepreneur having founded and sold two companies (AIT and Sphera) prior to founding Wix in 2006. We'll hear his personal story, explore the learnings of founding and building Wix, and discuss (as much as possible) the decision to IPO. What better place to do it than the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

Agenda:
6:30-7:00pm  Networking (Pizza by 10bis) 
7:00-7:15pm  Member Announcements
7:15-8:30pm  Founder Stories: Avishai Abrahami

Parking is available at TASE. Just tell them you're with TechAviv.

    On this meetup some people published a website that list angles, VCs and startups in Israel. I can't recall its name. Yaron Samid also mentioned another site if I remember correctly. Help anyone?

    Great interview. Giora is a very charismatic self driven individual. Very accurate in his thoughts and with a wide experience. No experience can be reproduced in any way but it is still inspiring o meet wit a successful Israel web entrepreneur in terms of understanding the skillset needed for a company to reach this level of success as well as to get acquainted and inspired by the personal aspect of the guy (backpacking, etc.) And great interview from Yaron. Excellent questions, etc.

    One of the best fireside chats I've seen. Gig not only tells a great story but also openly shares his insights and personal aspects of his ventures. And hats off to Yaron for his excellent interviewing skills.
