Ben has created many viral projects that have reached millions of people. His goal is to present Israel in a better light to the world. The first, Hummus Day, had tens of thousands of people celebrating this original holiday. After that came falafel day, which was just as popular. Soon after, Ben built Mapped in Israel, a crowdsourced map of Israeli startups that aimed to actually showcase the “start-up nation” for the whole world to see. This enticed more than 1,000 companies to add themselves to the map and attracted tens of thousands of monthly visitors. Investors used it as a resource to find new companies in Israel, as did people looking for jobs in the high-tech industry. During Operation Pillar of Defense, Ben created Iron Dome Count, a Twitter and Facebook page that was updated every time there was an Iron Dome interception. Thousands of people began following within days of its creation.
