Oded Berkowitz is the Founder and CEO of Clipix.com, an online organizational tool launched in February 2012. Oded created Clipix out of a personal need for a tool that would allow him and others to save and share links, documents, photos and video with one click, and provide a visual and organized environment for all of the things we all see online, and want to come back to. He is responsible for the conceptualization and direction of Clipix, specifically in indentifying the company’s positioning in the marketplace, both domestically and internationally. Oded believes that the platform’s user experience and unique features will provide users with the tools needed to easily manage and organize their busy online lives, and thus make Clipix a dominant player in this space.
