Iddo Gino (Founder, RapidAPI) I am a 17 years old teenager from Haifa, Israel. I graduated high school last year and I am now a B.Sc student at the Open University in Israel. I started programing when I was 12 and since came to love the endless possibilities that come with computers. Quickly though, I became annoyed with programing posing such a high barrier for upcoming developers and entrepreneurs. That’s when I started RapidAPI – a startup aimed at helping people with good ideas realize them, without wasting meaningful time on solving the technological issues related to them. I also started thinking that more teenagers should be into technology and startups, and thus I originated a worldwide hackathon day for teenagers. Later on, I introduced Rapid at Mixiii – a global convention for startups, and that’s where I met Dov Moran, the inventor of the Disk on Key. We since met and he invested in Rapid, and that’s how I turned it into a proper company. Today Rapid employs a group of 7 talented developers, designers and marketers, all set to change the way people develop.
