Or Retzkin is the Co-Founder and CEO of EyeControl. Or lost his grandmother, Julie, to ALS. The sadness and frustration experienced from a loved one losing their ability to communicate gave him a deep understanding of an existing problem and a clear vision for an innovative solution.
EyeControl was established in 2016 by co-founders, who all have personal connections to Locked-in individuals. Or joined together with Itai Kornberg, CTO and Co-founder, and Shay Rishoni (1966-2018), Co-founder and ALS patient, on a mission to give the Locked-in community the ability to communicate.
Or is a member of the 8400 HealthTech Leadership program and was an awardee of the 2021 Peres Heritage Initiative. He holds a joint BSc degree in Physics and Accounting from Tel Aviv University; and, went on to graduate with an additional MSc in Finance.
Prior to founding EyeControl, Or worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Israel, in the high-tech and industry audit departments. He continues to lecture in Tel Aviv University’s Accounting Department, and volunteers as Alumni Director at the 8200 Impact Accelerator.
