Uri Levine, co-founder of Waze, is coming to Montreal


Uri Levine, co-founder of Waze, the app that sold to Google for 1.1 billion dollars, will be in Montreal this week sharing his take on the role of technology in the community, how to get into startup-mode, and the internationalization of business. You can catch him tonight at District 3, and tomorrow he will be giving a talk in coordination with the Chamber of Commerce.

Founded in 2007, Waze is an Israeli and Palo Alto-based developer of free mapping and turn-by-turn navigation apps for iOS and Android. It launched a year later in 2008 and went on to raise $67 million in outside funding from numerous prominent Silicon Valley firms, as well as Horizon Ventures in Hong Kong, before Google acquired it in 2013.

The app uses crowdsourced data, driver-sourced mapping, community curation, and citizen traffic reporting create a mapping experience that is interactive and often more accurate thanks to an army of obsessive users reporting traffic data and updates in real time.

Levine, an angel investor and serial entrepreneur, is also the co-founder and Chairman of FeeX, and an investor and board member at half a dozen other startups, including Zeek, Roomer, Fairfly, Moovit, Engie, and Fairsale.

Tonight, join Canadian Friends of Tel Aviv University’s Young Professionals Group for an interactive evening with Levine, a Tel Aviv University alumnus. He will be appearing at Concordia University’s District 3 Innovation Center (1250 Rue Guy, 6th floor) tonight, with cocktails beginning at  6:00 pm and the Q&A and networking portion of the evening starting at 6:45. Tickets are $75/person.

“We believe this is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs and the innovation community in Montreal. Uri Levine has a wealth of experience as a successful entrepreneur. Having founded Waze in Israel, he also brings a wealth of knowledge from one of the best innovation ecosystems and the world,” Khalil Haddad of D3 told MTLinTECH.

Tomorrow night, he will be giving a speech at the Hyatt Regency Montreal (1255 Jeanne-Mance Street) organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal. He will be discussing his career, addressing trends and new developments in the world of start-ups, and sharing advice on the subjects of innovation and investment.

“Uri Levine is among those seasoned entrepreneurs who know how to innovate but also how to recognize a good idea when they see it and then turn it into a success. Few entrepreneurs can boast of having captured Google’s attention to the point of concluding a transaction of $1,1 billion with them. We believe his story can be an inspiration for the members of our business community,” Michel Leblanc, president and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal told MTLinTECH.

The event will begin at 5:30 pm and will be followed by a networking cocktail reception. Tickets are $55 for Chamber of Commerce members, and $59 for non-members

    viagra fiyatı

    Viagra fiyatı bir çok ürüne göre gayet uygundur. İçeriği tamamen doğal bitkilerden oluşur ve bu da maliyeti biraz arttırır. Viagra bu sorunu düzeltmek için tercih edilebilecek en iyi cinsel performans arttırıcı ürünler arasındadır. Viagra fiyatı bakımından piyasada bulunan ürünlere oranla sıralamasını biraz yukarıda tutmaktadır. Ancak vermiş olduğu fayda karşısında Viagra fiyatının hakkını vermektedir.

    What you published made a great deal of sense. But, what about this?

    suppose you were to write a awesome title? I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good., however suppose
    you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean Uri Levine, co-founder
    of Waze, is coming to Montreal – Montreal in Technology is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page
    and note how they write news titles to get viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about
    what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make
    your posts a little livelier.

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    In paying with a cheque, you set the amount after which
    provide the cheque on the retailer, cheques are believed
    as effective as cash, and also this concept is analogous with prepaid plastics.
    Prepaid Visa Credit Cards have really gained in popularity these days.
    If you are planning to get cash, you must try to find the cardboard while using lowest interest

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
