Passionate about Innovation and Blue Ocean Startup

Gil Rachlin is a seasoned product manager and data strategist with over a decade of experience with both startups and large corporations.  He discovered his passion for growth generating innovation early on, but found it to be a distinction during his masters studies when he was constantly looking for ways to take existing research ideas to the next level for his thesis and developed a new methodology for predicting stock trends using news analysis and fundamental analysis, which had breakthrough results and is still being studied and funded in the academia.    

For the past 7 years he has been part of the growing community of New York's Silicon Alley and was part of the leadership team of companies like: Quigo (until its sale to AOL for $360 Mill) and Kgb inc.($1Bill company, which is known for its 411 services, kgbkgb and kgbdeals services) and most recently as Head of Product for PerformLine. 

Currently Gil runs Xtrech Holdings (stands for eXtreme Technologies), where he pursues his passion of helping companies find true innovation without competition. Xtrech companies include:PerformlineScanBizCardsAdFin SolutionsLegal FaceOffAppinions,SeaPass,  Bolt Insurance10sum.

After helping multiple companies innovate their way into growth and measuring their success, Gil found that both Blue Ocean Strategy and Lean Startup techniques can't reside separately and decided to combine them into Blue Ocean Startup. He is now spreading the word and helping companies methodically use these to grow their efforts.
