Our guest, live streaming to Cape Town, is Uri Levine, co-founder of Waze. 

Unicorns—companies that reach a valuation of more than $1 billion—are rare. Uri Levine has built two - Waze & Moovit.

Discover the formula he used that drove those companies to compete with industry veterans and giants alike.


Levine offers an inside look at the creation and sale of Waze and his second unicorn, Moovit, revealing the formula that builds unicorns. He offers tips on:

  • Disrupting broken markets
  • Understanding your users
  • Reaching product market fit
  • Making scale-up decisions
  • Going global
  • Raising funding
  • Firing and hiring

As the cofounder of Waze—the world’s leading commuting and navigation app with more than 700 million users to date, and which Google acquired in 2013 for $1.15 billion—Levine is committed to spreading entrepreneurial thinking so that other founders, managers, and employees space can build their own highly valued companies.

Levine is heading “The Founders Kitchen”, a company-builder fund, serving as co-founder and chairman of FeeX, FairFly, Refundit, and Fibo. He also serves on the Board of Directors of Moovit, Seetree, LiveCare, HERE Technology and Dynamo.
