Description

You’ve heard of failing upwards and there’s a reason for that. Today’s guest is best-known for inventing the widely used USB memory flash drive. But perhaps Dov Moran should also be revered as an entrepreneur who isn’t afraid to fail, and isn’t afraid to admit it.


As a child, Dov had the characteristics of an entrepreneur; curiosity, aptitude for technology, and perhaps most importantly, the influence of his grandfather — himself a successful entrepreneur. Dov's grandfather exposed him to crucial concepts such as mechanics and money, but also instilled in him a mindset that would prove vital for an innovative life.


Listen closely as Gil discovers the surprising moments Dov considers failures — events that would be considered successful by nearly everyone’s standards. Dov's humble demeanor only enhances his credibility and provides a more holistic view of his entrepreneurial journey.
