About Merav Knafo

I’m an award-winning software designer, a project manager, and an entrepreneur. Over the last 20 years I’ve started six companies and sold five of them. I focus on technology, creating complex yet user-friendly proprietary and open source applications for platforms such as Joomla and WordPress.

My most pioneering work has been in the field of open source content management. In 2005, small companies struggled to put even the most basic functions on their websites. Development was expensive and difficult. Simple upgrades required deep expertise. I was part of a small group that saw the potential in open source software to change the landscape. My software designs helped even novice users to build their own content platforms at a fraction of the previous cost. For the first time, anyone could publish professional online magazines, build a complex social network or develop eLearning systems that were affordable and user-friendly. Hundreds of thousands of people have used my software over the years.

My interests extend beyond technology though, and include spirituality, wellness, and environmentalism. In 2015 I started an Amazon business selling natural cosmetics. I sold my share in that company in 2019 to focus on an exciting new environmental start-up.

Merav turned my poorly-functioning website Ito something that not only looks great, but it also functions as well as possible, too. And while Merav knows more about how to make a website function well than anyone I’ve ever met, she also has an amazing team to do whatever needs to be done and she knows how to make things in a way that so many of us would benefit from learning. Thank you, Merav, for an amazing job!

Merav created the Mynoo Maryel web platform and also the website for the World Dignity Forum.  Her business acumen combined with diligent and rigorous project management abilities were the key to the work getting done in time and delivering what was intended as a business.  She is gifted and in tune with what is the need of the moment within the over all context of what the business is about.  This ensures that we receive the business benefits and personal satisfaction from the work she undertakes.  I am grateful for the privilege to have worked with her and will do so again anytime.
