Entrée Capital’s “Founder Spotlight” series is a collection of video and written blogs that aim to highlight some of the inspiring founders in our portfolio and to share some of the lessons that they’ve learned along the way.
In this episode, we chatted with Sagi Gidali, the co-founder and CGO of Perimeter 81, which radically simplifies cybersecurity with the world’s first Cybersecurity Experience (CSX) Platform.
In the conversation Sagi discussed why he and his partner decided to sell a profitable business and start over with a new one, how understanding global trends led them to hone in on their PMF, and the importance of understanding data and metrics in every aspect of a company.
A bit about Sagi:
Sagi has been a serial entrepreneur since he was nine years old. But instead of printing and selling stickers, he creates, scales, and optimizes SaaS solutions. Before he established Perimeter 81—and SaferVPN with Amit—he worked as a UX consultant for Siemens. Today, Sagi leads all of Perimeter 81’s demand generation, marketing, and design. During his army service, he worked in the IDF’s elite visual intelligence unit and later was a software developer at Imperva. He has a patent for the security of public Wi-Fi networks and received a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Economics from Tel Aviv University.
