Boaz Gaon
Boaz Gaon, Founder & CEO:My journey to Wisdo is deeply personal; it began with my father’s terminal illness, when like millions I found it incredibly difficult, time consuming and ineffective to find others who’ve been in our shoes and who could measurably improve emotional support, a sense of belonging, a sense of worth and the possibility of helping others.
