Emi Gal

Romanian software engineer and entrepreneur based in New York


I’m a tech entrepreneur and software engineer based in New York. I’m currently building Ezra, a healthcare startup focused on creating a new way to screen for cancer using MRI & AI. If you’d like to learn about why I started Ezra and read about our mission, check out this blog post.

I started my first company, Brainient, when I was 19 and spent the following 10 years building it into one of the leading ad-tech companies in Europe. Brainient was acquired by Teads in September 2016 and I then spent two years scaling the Brainient business unit (now called Teads Studio) globally.

Outside work I enjoy spending time with my wife and learning new things. To address the latter, I’ve taken on a new challenge every year since 2008. Some of the most challenging and interesting ones were sleeping 2.5 hours per day for two months (polyphasic sleep), reading a book per week and training my memory with a world memory champion.
