#16 - From Kawasaki Disease to Tech Unicorn - Nadav Shoval




Nadav Shoval is the co-founder and CEO of Spot.im, a tech venture empowering publishers to host quality conversations to build thriving communities, and generate civil conversations to make the online space better reflect in person connections.


Kawasaki disease changed his life and directed him into coding and building online communities from a young age. After serving in the military, with no high-school or university degrees, he knew that the next step for him was to start his own company.


“If you have the ability to build a business - don’t you want to be able to look back and see that you made one thing in the world slightly better?“

I hope you enjoy it! If you do, please rate, share and comment.


Happy Listening!
