Mr. Nir Erez

Executive Vice President, Mobileye<br>Co-founder and CEO, Moovit, Mobileye

Full Bio +

Nir Erez sees the future of urban mobility and in it, data is the determinant.

 

As Co-founder and CEO of Moovit, a leading Mobility as a Service (MaaS) provider and the world’s #1 urban mobility app, Nir Erez believes data companies will become the operating system – the brains and heart – of smart cities. Moovit, he says, is poised to be the leader. Indeed, Moovit is an early pioneer of Mobility as a Service (MaaS), with its free transit app that currently has over 775 million users and predicted to surge to one billion by 2021. 

 

Erez co-founded Moovit with Roy Bick and Yaron Evron in February 2012 with the goal of simplifying urban mobility around the world. The company grew quickly with four rounds of funding totaling $133 million 

 

Along the way, Erez has become a thought leader with opinion pieces and interviews published in Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, U.S. News and World Report and LinkedIn, among others.

 

Nir is a sought-after speaker at industry conferences like Web Summit, NOAH Berlin,

Mondial de l'Automobile auto show in Paris, New Mobility World, and others.

 

Erez is a serial entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience leading technology startups. Prior to Moovit, Nir was also the founder and CEO of both ActionBase and Optimal Plus. Nir is also co-owner and co-founder of Eyron Group which invests in early-stage software companies. Erez graduated from the IDF computer academy (Mamram) and holds a Bsc. degree in Physics.

 
In 1994 Erez graduated from Bar-Ilan University with a degree in Physics, which he applies to business. “You must anticipate the reaction to every action,” Erez says. “In business, every problem has a solution. It just takes the right team, time and resources. It’s also a marathon, not a sprint.” Marathons are something Erez knows intimately as an avid triathlete who completed multiple marathons and Ironman races in the last 15 years.
