Our Personal Journey

Mellie was formed by three friends -  Zvika Goldstein, Tal Hasson, and Chad Baldwin who wanted to make a bigger, more meaningful, and direct impact on people’s lives. 

Zvika had moved back to Israel from the US to stay closer to his parents.

Tal was busy working on assistive mobile technology for persons with disabilities.  

Chad was inspired by his wife (a therapist specializing in geropsychology), his mom

(a hospice nurse), and his dad (an estate attorney). 

Mellie was founded and would be led by the heart.

 

We value collaboration, integrity, elegant and straightforward solutions to tough problems.  We are located in Tel Aviv and the Bay Area.
