I met today with CEO Avner Halperin, who gave me a tour of the company’s Waltham, Massachusetts headquarters and demonstrated the product. Governor Deval Patrick attracted EarlySense to Massachusetts as part of his trade mission to Israel, where EarlySense is based. I was introduced to the company a couple years ago by a client who was impressed with the technology, but Avner and I actually go way back. Until recently, the last time I saw Avner was at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC 27 years ago when Senator Bob Packwood gave the commencement address to the Walt Whitman High School graduating class, of which Avner and I were both members.
In this podcast interview Avner discusses the company, its technology, and the decision to locate in Massachusetts.
