On Wednesday, July 17th, Nir will join Phil Libin on stage at the 14th Edition of the Founder Showcase, featuring a series of “How To” workshops for early-stage founders. In addition to Phil’s talk on best practices for new startups, Nir will address the topic of addictive products, and reveal the patterns companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest use to keep us coming back.

Nir founded two tech companies since 2003 and today is a Lecturer in Marketing at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. His last company received venture funding from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and was acquired in 2011.
