My name is Kfir Adam, and I’ve been working in the hi-tech industry in Israel since 1987.
I started as an electrical engineer and spent the first 10 years of my career as an engineer and R&D manager in private companies that dealt with multidisciplinary products (electronics, software and mechanics).
As an R&D manager, I faced the full product life cycle from idea to development, transfer to production and post-sale customers service.
Since 1996 I have initiated 6 start-up companies, always as entrepreneur and CEO.
I hold a B.Sc. in Electrical and Computers Engineering from BGU and an ME in Biomedical Engineering from the Technion.
Currently I’m the CEO of LinguisTech Solutions LNTS Linguistech Solutions. I took the company at 2007 and performed a full turnaround of the company. LNTS holds unique Speech Recognition Technology.
Prior to LNTS I founded EPRS who deals with marketing prepaid products electronically. As part of my duties, I raised fund from all types of investors (VCs, angels and banks), managed sales teams in Israel and Turkey and prepared a prospectus for IPO in TASU.
When I sold the company, its total revenue was USD 30 million a year. As part of our international activity, I founded and managed a subsidiary in Turkey.
Prior to EPRS, I founded Adamtech developed a cellular payphone, which integrates a smart card as a payment method. In 2000, the company switched to developing a mobile payment system using a cellphone. Experts say the company was ahead of its time by 10 years.
In my military service I have served as an officer in Sayeret Matkal.
I am characterized by creativity, high-level decision-making capabilities, integrity and common sense.
I am a big believer in hard work, teamwork and integrity.
