In mid-March 2022, about 30 senior executives headed by the CEO of the Avril Group arrived in Israel. During the visit to Israel, as DigitalRosh founder and CEO, I was asked to give a lecture about failures in digital. “We googled “Innovation, Digital & Israel,” and found you, they answered when asked how they found us.
During the lecture, delivered by Professor Yesha Sivan and Yoav Celouche, the principals learned about digital force and realized that on the road to success, one may fail quite a few times, and we must learn from every failure.
