Andy Chou

Matan would make a great cofounder. He is driven and passionate yet very friendly to work with. When he worked for me as a consultant at C ... overity, I found that he quickly identified the essence of the project and figured out how to contribute effectively. He quickly became a trusted resource for senior architects and developers on our project. Throughout the consulting arrangement I knew that Matan had been exploring ideas and was looking to found a company some day and was seeking out the right cofounder and right experience in the interim. He would be a fantastic match for anyone who is eager to build a great company.

I've known matan for years, and have always admired the way he not only has new exciting ideas, but actually manages to follow through with ... them, turning them into a reality. Matan is the type of person you can count on to find the right questions that need answering & then come up with an effective solution. As an investor I meet a lot of entrepreneurs, and I know how important it is to separate the ones who can follow through with their ideas from the others. Matan is in my experience one of those who will follow through, time after time. I am proud to vouch for him. Ofer
