Ori Lahav wants to show people that with a vision and motivation to “Dream Big,” you can satisfy a need people didn’t know they had. The journey he took with his partner to enter the world of content marketing required them to constantly reevaluate how users use media outlets. Magazines and journals are curated masterfully to show readers what they should read next. His mission is to apply this same principal on a much grander scale and to individualize it for each of his users.

Ori Lahav is the Co-Founder and General Manager of Outbrain. He oversees the company's research and development center located in Netanya, Israel. Prior to co-founding Outbrain, Ori led the research and development groups in search and classification at, which was acquired by eBay for $634 million.

Previously, Ori was a leader at the video streaming server group at Vsoft. He is a graduate in practical engineering from the Rupin Academic Institute and holds the rank of Major as a reserve officer in the Israeli Navy.
