July 10th, 7:00 AM at the Skirball Center, the Los Angeles Venture Association will host its 27th Annual Meeting.  The morning’s program, Mobile Ecosystem of Southern California and Beyond is being produced by LAVA Mobile, the Strategic Interest Group, is focused on mobile enabled businesses, technology, products and services.  Three invited experts will present a 360 view of the Mobile Ecosystem / Marketplace generally with an accent on Southern California.  Rather than the typical panel session, this event provides each speaker the opportunity to make an extended presentation of their insights, observations and perspectives from their unique viewpoint.

One of those invited experts is Shuki Lehavi, Co-Founder and CEO of Gumiyo.  As one of the earliest entrants to conquer the mobile space, Gumiyo founders recognized a need to help companies boast an integrated web experience across any platform and on any device.  As champions for businesses big and small, the Gumiyo platform delivers a website that responds perfectly on a desktop, mobile device or tablet.

With a team of technology leaders, Gumiyo is currently deploying the next generation of its products, creating an optimized experience for every device and seamlessly delivering the world’s information, anytime and anywhere.

Shuki Lehavi started Gumiyo  in 2006, which offers the cloud-hosted tools to build SMS programs, mobile sites and apps.  Mr. Lehavi is an avid technologist with over 15 years of successful experience in managing and developing enterprise applications in the banking, healthcare, automotive, and mobile industries. He enjoys working with founders and solving business, product and technology problems. When he is not working around the clock, he spends time with his wife and 3 kids, and gets bypassed every year at the LA Marathon by the group of Elvis impersonators.
