We are excited for the team Lior, Shay, Avidan, Mor, Noa & Ayelet.  This is an opportunity for us to highlight not only the product but the entrepreneurs behind it.  All Five of Contacts+ team came to UpWest Labs in Palo Alto on January 2012.  They came for three months of non-stop work to help them reach product-market fit.  The Contacts+ team is the combination of strong tech, product, business, design and lots of hard work.  It was evident as the long days and weeks at UpWest Labs demanded immediate delivery and focus from them.  Many of our mentors here will attest that Lior Romano the CEO of Contacts+ is one of the most persistant and relentless entrepreneurs they’ve met.  What we know is that the entire team never lost focus of one thing — deliver and excute an outstanding product. Congratulations Lior & team.  The best is yet to come.
