"With small funds, you only need to find a few good ideas a year to get behind. That is true in hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, and probably many other asset classes

With large funds, you need to get behind every good idea every year."

DevArt is a new type of art. It is made with code, by developers that push the possibilities of creativity and technology.

Story
Tagline
Immersing myself in the startup community in London
Introduction
I'm the head of Google for Entrepreneurs Europe, supporting startup ecosystems and making them grow. In 2012, I've started and led Campus London, a physical startup hub that serves as the heart of the startup community in East London (Tech City) started by Google in collaboration with partners.  

Prior to leading Campus, I was a strategic partnerships manager at Google, where he spearheaded a lot of our work in developing the commerce offering in Europe. Previously, I worked in a number of tech companies: I was Principal Product Manager of AOL Search in Europe, Senior Product Manager at Ask.com in San Francisco, Product Manager at Gerson Lehrman Group in New York and Team Leader at Shopping.com in Israel. Going back a bit, I co-founded a tech startup in Israel in 2003 and in 2005 I founded VC Cafe, a popular blog on early stage Israeli startups.

I have an MBA from London Business School and a BA in Business Administration, IT Management and Entrepreneurship from the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Israel. In his spare time, Eze serves as a mentor to several European incubators, including Seedcamp, Springboard, Launch48, Lean Startup Machine, Entrepreneurship summer school, Emerge Labs and Oxygen and am on the advisory board of 88Mph (an incubator in Nairobi), and BBC Labs.
