Remembering Benny

A Tribute To Our Co-Founder

Benny Rosenbaum defined “people-person” in the truest sense. He magnetized people with his charm and motivated them with his infinite optimism. His family, his friends, and his colleagues were precious to him. His love for his country was not far behind. A Zionist, a proud Israeli, and a leader in the Israeli high-tech industry, Benny was the first to embrace and understand the commercial ramifications of the science on which BioCatch’s technology is based.

His leadership and passion did not end at the office. An avid mountain-biker, Benny organized a group of mountain-bikers to conquer the 1,000 kilometer Israel National Trail, a hiking trail that crosses the entire country from the border with Lebanon to the Red Sea. Creatively, he called the group “B’shvil Israel” meaning “For Israel” but a play on the words “On the Israel Trail.”

As a philanthropist, Benny was the founder and spirit behind the Afikoman Project. His goal was to provide Passover gifts to less fortunate children. Thanks to Benny, 1,587 children from 87 day-care centers and shelters across the country received gifts in 2015. For many it was the first gift they had ever received.

As one of the founders of BioCatch, Benny carried the torch. Benny Rosenbaum 1959-2015
His never-ending belief in the science and revolutionary idea began at the white-board and his enthusiasm and optimism became a magnet that brought together an exceptional cast of scientists, developers, and market builders.

Benny was a well-known and respected Chief Executive Officer, sought-after and valued for his guidance, and a mentor to many Israeli entrepreneurs. Prior to BioCatch, Benny was a member of the team that founded Magic Software Enterprises, established the enterprise division of Babylon, and served as the CEO of several startup companies.

At BioCatch, our success is his success. He will always be remembered.
