Dov Moran is an Israeli entrepreneur, inventor, and investor. He is best known as the inventor of the USB memory stick, and one of the most prominent Israeli hi-tech leaders in the world.
In episode 3 of season 2, I had the pleasure of sitting with Dov Moran one of the more grounded entrepreneurs i know (there is no age limit to being one)who sold a company for $1.5B to Sandisk. He is pragmatism and realism are refreshing as he discusses the pros and cons (yes there can be some downside) to selling his company and why he decided he wanted to start something new, the mistakes he made along the way, and what he is doing now with Grove ventures. Dov even goes into how he became chairman of Tower Semiconductor and has to make some really hard decisions to save the company. But this is just some of the things you will learn when you listen to this podcast, here are a few more things;1) What was his first job?2) When did he realize that he had the wrong people in mSystems? (12:50)3) When did mSystems start taking off? (15:45)4) How many times did it take before mSystems sold to Sandisk? (20:40)5) How instrumental was Dov in turning around Tower Semiconductor? (28:10)6) Why is Grove Ventures focused on deep learning tech? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
