CXBuzz Interview With Tamir Huberman CIO and Head of Marketing of Yeda the commercial arm of the Weizmann Institute of Science.
I have always loved innovation and inventions. Since my childhood, I used a lot of my time in inventing new electronic gadgets and fixing broken electronic equipment. After finishing a diploma in Computers and Electronics I decided to learn Biology and later did my master’s studies in Structural Biology and Computer Science. In the early companies, I worked for I was exposed to the world of patents, following the process of submitting a couple of new patents.
My passion for innovation finally led me to the most innovative type of company on the planet, called TTOs or Technology Transfer Offices. Most of the Universities and research institutes in the world have their own TTO. TTOs are responsible for first spotting promising inventions and transferring them to existing companies or establish new startup companies based on those inventions.
I was lucky to work closely with amazing researchers such as Prof Amnon Shashua which was the founder of MobilEye and OrCam and Prof Shmuel Peleg, founder of BriefCam.
Realizing the potential of Social Media and LinkedIn I have harnessed the amazing power of the platform to ignite exciting collaborations. In addition, I created several leading platforms for handling innovation which are the leading IT platforms in Israel.
