Chaim Gross is the Founder of The Kosher App. The story of the app is the classic entrepreneur story: identify everyday problem, dream up solution. Chaim was shopping in Trader Joe’s, trying to figure out if something was kosher and knew there had to be a better way. The adventure began. Taking 12,000 pictures, integrating computer vision and machine learning, and building on the foundation of sleepless nights – The Kosher App was born. In addition to helping folks navigate the Kosher food landscape, Chaim is the SVP of Product at Zeno Media, a company with a user base of over 5 million listeners that brings international radio to immigrants. He is a self-taught programmer and graphic designer.
