Eran is an investor, advisor, and serial entrepreneur with three exits as a founder. With over a decade of experience in retail and e-commerce, Eran has been publicly recognized for his achievements, winning Techstars and AlleyNYC PitchNites; the United Nations World Summit Award for Innovation; and FastCompany’s World’s Most Innovative Startups, among others.
Eran is passionate about startups that solve a significant problem, especially in crowdsourcing and retail marketplaces. After spending so much time in the retail world, he was astounded to learn that there is no clear view of the shopper to drive an authentic understanding of who they are when they log into a site or walk into a store. He was further concerned with the fact that this critical missing component forced retailers to scrounge for unreliable, third-party data in an attempt to deliver the best online shopping experience to their customers — all while shoppers lack both control and visibility into who has access to their shopping data and how it’s being used.
As Shopin’s CEO and Co-founder, Eran is turning retailers’ websites into a distributed Amazon via a universal shopper profile, blockchain technology, and cryptocurrency, delivering the most personalized online shopping experience possible.
