Back when the first iPhone was introduced, Itai Sadan, cofounder and CEO of DudaMobile, looked at the way people viewed websites on their mobile phones and knew there had to be a better way to experience the Web. So he set out to create DudaMobile, a do-it-yourself mobile website builder that allows businesses to convert their existing website into a mobile-friendly site in just one click.
Prior to founding DudaMobile, Sadan was a director at SAP, where he managed the SAP Discovery System program and led relationships with IBM, HP and Fujitsu. He also worked for Amdocs and Finjan and founded InterSight, a start-up for data storage.
Sadan has a Bachelor of Science in computer science and mathematics from the Ben Gurion University in Israel.
DudaMobile is on a mission to make all websites mobile-friendly. The do-it-yourself platform uses a business’ URL to auto-convert its existing website into a mobile-optimized version with a similar look and feel. Using the DudaMobile site editor, businesses can further customize the mobile website with drag-and-drop features such click to call, mobile maps and click to text.
Since the company officially launched in 2009, more than 1.5 million mobile sites have been built on the DudaMobile platform. Duda recently partnered with Google to power a free mobile website builder on howtogomo.com and expand the Google-led GoMo initiative to help businesses go mobile.
