Building a company to a valuation of more than $1 billion is a rare accomplishment – building two such unicorns is truly extraordinary, and Uri Levine has done just that.
Levine has created several successful startups by following a simple formula: focus on everyday problems and listen to the users. Most notably in 2007, he co-founded Waze, the world’s largest driving traffic and navigation app that was acquired by Google in 2013 for $1.1 billion. Levine then served as the first board member and investor in Moovit, a public transportation app used by more than 750 million people worldwide. Moovit was acquired for $1 billion dollars by Intel in 2020.
In this masterclass on entrepreneurship inspired by his just-released book, Fall in Love with the Problem, Not the Solution: A Handbook for Entrepreneurs, Levine discusses the key factors that helped him lead Waze, Moovit, and several other startups to long-term success. He shares his insights on the various stages of the entrepreneurial journey, including disrupting “broken” markets, raising funding, building a team, reaching product-market fit, making scale-up decisions, going global, and deciding when to sell.
Hear from one of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs as he empowers business leaders to lead their companies to success by identifying consumers’ recurring problems and disrupting the inefficient markets that currently serve them.
We look forward to hosting you again!
