Joel Katz
We worked together  •  Chief Operating Officer, Ashford.com and Chief Operating Officer, Mont D'Or Of America.
I hade the pleasure and opportunity to work with Eli and I learned more from him more than I have ever learned from anybody in my life. He i ... s smart, brilliant and extremely intelligent in ecommerece and building up company's from the ground. I have witness Eli taking a wholesale company that was doing only 5 million in retail and transition it to a 100 million dollar retail business.

We worked together  •  Biz dev, sales, product & growth strategy expert. Love B2B businesses. I advise and I operate. Looking for the next big idea to join!
Eli is the kind of guy you rarely meet and when you do, he quickly becomes an advisor, friend and someone with whom you want to work. He is ... not only incredibly well-networked and can be a tremendous resource in that regard, but he offers advice (and great, intellectually driven advice at that) because he is the rare breed that has a true passion for building, advising and seeing people succeed. He has that grit and scrappiness that every entrepreneur seeks, combined with frame-work way of thinking - so he is not just action action action, but very practical, logical, and intellectually-sound action action action action. THAT is motivating. Thats the kind of person you want in your court.
Anjelika Kour
We worked together  •  Founder and CEO, Brick & Portal. Previously Data and Operations Manager, Harri.com.
Eli is a great advisor because he thinks very differently and tackles problems from a unique perspective. I always leave knowing so much mor ... e after talking with Eli. He is a cradle of experience, knowledge, and good advice.
