Mr. Peri has over 35 years experience in the Israeli and American high-tech communities. In his latest position, he served as President & CEO of Inventech, a TASE publicly traded VC investment company. In 1998 Mr. Peri co-founded and was the Managing Director of GPS Tech Venture, an Israeli consulting company which represents investors and manages investments in Israeli-related technology companies. The company focuses on identifying investment opportunities in order to generate high returns for its investors.


Before founding GPS Tech Ventures, Mr. Peri was Vice President of Elron Electronic Industries, a large multi-national high-tech holding company based in Israel.

“This is the time when real-time accurate traffic information is rapidly gaining a lot of interest from various players in the navigation space. The rapidly growing penetration of navigation services and the increasing demand from customers to be automatically informed about the traffic situation that they are about to encounter is rapidly pushing service providers to find cost-effective ways to include accurate traffic information in their services. Decell is extremely well positioned in this field and is leading the pack in this space. I am extremely happy to see Decell enjoying this tremendous momentum,” said Peri.
