Gal Nachum

Founder & Active Chairman @ Cognishape & xFind

I started my professional career in the IDF’s prestigious Talpiot program for technological leadership. I later served for 5 years in the Israeli Air Force’s Software Unit and in 1991 received the IAF’s award for technological innovation.

I am a serial entrepreneur and have co-founded Mobix (acquired by Backweb in 1997), Synopsis (acquired by Datasafe in 2000), Cash-U (merged with Niragongo in 2004), Unipier (acquired by Flash Networks in 2008) and Ringya. I am currently a co-founder and active chairman at xFind – a knowledge discovery startup and at Cognishpae – a startup in the AgeTech domain.

I am very active in the Tel-Aviv hi-tech ecosystem. I mentor at multiple accelerators (including Techstars, AWS Loft, Sigmalabs and others) and advise to multiple startups. Until recently I was teaching entrepreneurial studies at the Tel-Aviv university. I am also an active angel investor in early stage startups.

I hold a B.Sc. cum laude from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem in Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science and an M.Sc. cum laude from the Tel Aviv University in Computer Science.
