Idan Cohen

Idan Cohen is a co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Boxee, a freeware media player software platform.

Prior to Boxee, Idan pioneered the Innovation Lab at Comverse, establishing the company as a leader in telecom software and services.

As a co-founder of Boxee and VP of Platform, Idan Cohen is responsible for expanding the capabilities of Boxee by developing relationships with content and service partners. Cohen spent his first three years at Boxee as Head of Product, where he crafted each aspect of the software’s critically acclaimed user experience. His goal, in line with Boxee’s own philosophy, is to bring the creativity of the web to the TV screen.

Prior to Boxee, Cohen pioneered the Innovation Lab at Comverse, establishing the company as a leader in telecom software and services. This unique initiative helped the company innovate across multiple business segments through experimentation with cutting edge telecom and Internet technology.

Cohen has always been a craftsman at heart. As a child, he was devoted to modeling airplanes, and later as an adult, he flew his own plane at the Red Bull Flugtag (granted, it didn’t go very far). Today, you can find him snapping pictures with his small army of vintage and modern cameras, or in the kitchen masterfully preparing his own signature dishes.
