Asaf Shamly: "I figured out that maybe I need a war plan for Browsi... which is insane to think about."
In a conversation with Noa Eshed and Ronen Menipaz on the podcast Real Life Superpowers, Browsi Co-Founder Asaf Shamly discusses being an entrepreneur during a war and the emotional toll it brings.
"As a startup company, you don’t make plans for war, right? You have doomsday scenarios, where you run out of money, or things happen, but you never think 'Okay, there's gonna be a war tomorrow, let's build up my plan for war', you never do that." said Browsi Co-Founder Asaf Shamly on the Real Life Superpowers Podcast. "And when it actually happened, I figured out that maybe I need a war plan for Browsi - for my company, which is insane to think about. So we have to be agile, and being a startup allows you to be very agile."
In this special wartime episode, Ronen and Noa speak with Asaf Shamly, a visionary entrepreneur and thought leader in the AdTech space, who co-founded Browsi, an AdTech AI startup back in 2017, with a mission to create a world where content and ads blend harmoniously
