The VentureFizz Podcast: Nitzan Shaer, Co-Founder and CEO at WEVO

For the 123rd episode of our podcast, I interviewed Nitzan Shaer, Co-Founder and CEO at WEVO.

Nitzan was early in the mobile world that we live in now. I’m talking about a pre-iPhone era, when he was part of the team that was figuring out early mobile strategy from Microsoft and Skype.

He’s a serial entrepreneur and his latest startup is called WEVO. You might be familiar with A/B testing after your website is launched. Well, WEVO is taking a radically different approach by helping companies optimize your website before going live. It does this through artificial intelligence and a proprietary behavioral model which generates recommendations that have proven to significantly increase conversion.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:

  • Nitzan’s background in terms of growing up in Israel what he learned from being a member of the Israeli Air Force.
  • His experience at Microsoft, which included an interesting story of a mobile strategy session at Bill Gates’ house.
  • His time at Skype where he helped the company launch the mobile version of their product.
  • All the details on WEVO, including what led them down the path of starting the company and the value of their platform.
  • What makes a great product manager.
  • Advice for founders on starting a consulting firm.
  • And so much more.

Our Job Board has over 4,500 positions listed, and we just went through a redesign of the job listing. It is a much cleaner design and you’ll find highly relevant information on each listing like employee testimonials, photos, video, and the latest featured story from VentureFizz.
