episode 116

 

As cofounder and president of Happify, giving people a fun way to pass the time is nothing new for Ofer Leidner. He cofounded and built several digital media businesses, including iPlay/Oberon Media, which offered those downloadable games for phones that consume hours and become an obsession for some. But despite his success, Ofer didn’t feel great about the effects of his work. So he channeled his skills toward a whole new venture, where folks may still become immersed, but now, hopefully, for all the right reasons. Hear how Ofer and his colleagues are helping users break bad habits and start healthy new ones.
