Revital Hendler founded her first startup company at the age of 29. At the age of 33 she sold substantial shares of it to an international company at a little under 18.5M USD. She served as its CEO for over 7 years. During those years, she admits she couldn't wait to have enough money to hire a pro-CEO to run the company so she could step aside. Why? Because she was taught that her female traits (too nice, too sensitive and too motherly..) just don’t belong in business. She proved them all wrong.

Serial social-tech entrepreneur. In 2005 Revital founded AllJobs, disruptive startup for job-searches. A year and a half later AllJobs was the leading brand in the field and in less than 3 years part of it was sold for $18 million. Revital was the CEO of AllJobs in the first 7 years; she established unique business models in the field (both B2C and B2B) and managed more than 250 employees. In 2011 she co-founded WorkWith.me, a revolutionary social recruiting network that enabled job seekers and employers meet through friends’ recommendations based on the “wisdom of the crowds”. In 2013, she co-founded BreezoMeter, real time air pollution mapping platform, that was announced the most promising startup in 2014 in the world by GEW (The global entrepreneurship world). Today, Revital is a partner and a manager of an accelerator program for startups that tackle social issues with technology – TechForGood Rally.
