Dror Berman

Dror co-founded Innovation Endeavors with Eric Schmidt, former CEO and Executive Chairman of Google/Alphabet Inc., in 2010.

Dror invests in early-stage startups that are driving exponential rates of change in their industries — from agriculture and computational biology to fulfillment centers and satellites. He partners with creative thinkers and technologists who leverage data, compute, and advanced engineering to bring their visions to life.

Dror led the firm’s investments in: Eikon Therapeutics, which employs revolutionary single molecule imaging technology to discover novel treatments for life-threatening diseases;  Fabric, which is leveraging robotics to re-architect the supply chain; Vicarious Surgical, which applies robotics and virtual reality to minimally invasive surgeries; Atom Computing, which is building scalable quantum computers out of individual atoms; and Gatik, which is developing self-driving solutions for urban logistics — to name a few. 

Dror earned an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business and a BS in Computer Science, and graduated undergrad cum laude from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev for computer science and bioinformatics. Prior to earning his MBA, Dror held various R&D roles at NICE Systems (Nasdaq: NICE) and was part of an elite Special Forces unit of the Israeli Defense Forces.
