About this event

It's always a pleasure to reunite with our community members and network with you. We enjoy hearing about the positive experiences that you have had, and we also appreciate the opportunity to share our own challenges and needs. Networking with the community is always beneficial for us all.

Our next speaker Gur Shatz, Cato Networks’ Co-Founder and COO, is joining us on Feb. 1st for what is expected to be a truly inspiring interview. We’ll discuss what motivated him when building up Cato Networks, a tech unicorn that is disrupting the enterprise networking and security space. We’ll also find out what his biggest challenges were (and are). Finally, we’ll unveil what insights can be gleaned by emerging entrepreneurs, 7 years into his successful business.

Take part on February 1th @ 6:00 pm to hear:

⚡️ What an entrepreneur’s main motivation for starting a company should be.

⚡️ Why Cato spent 1.5 years tweaking their service offering before going-to-market (and why this isn’t a recommended strategy for first-time entrepreneurs).

⚡️ What to do when you wake up one day to find you’re the industry’s leader. How do you defend your position?

⚡️ Gur's perspective on the Israeli cybersecurity landscape and Israeli high-tech ecosystem in light of the current global economic climate.
