Gal Alon

Founder

Gal Alon (PhD) is a passionate believer in collective action. He founded Insights.US to solve the pain of civic engagement, enabling +1M people to take part in decision making. Prior to that, he served at the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office, where he led the government to define outcomes and manage performance. In 2018, Gal relinquished his role as Insights' CEO. Today, he is trying to define what "Government People Love" looks like.

Insights.US developed an AI-powered software that has assisted 5 governments and 30+ cities to become customer centristic. 100+ organizations such as the US State Department, the Austrian Parliament and UNDP used the platform to ask questions and close feedback loops with their stakeholders. GovLab at NYU noted Insights.US "stands out for the way in which it connects citizens with public servants." 

As a professional in the Prime Minister’s Office, Gal led the Israeli government into the era of performance management and inclusive decision making. He founded policy units, authored the first Planning Manual and institutionalized roundtables. 

Dr. Alon received his PhD from the London School of Economics. He lectured on social policy between 2008 and 2013 at both the Hebrew University and Tel Aviv University. Forbes picked him as one of Israel's most promising young entrepreneurs.
