Wix is a website building platform that was founded in 2006 by Avishai Abrahami, Nadav Abrahami, and Giora Kaplan. The idea for Wix came about when the three founders were trying to create a website for another business they were working on, but found the process to be frustrating and difficult.
They realized that there was a need for a platform that made it easy for anyone to create a professional-looking website without needing to have technical skills or knowledge of coding. This led to the development of Wix, which is a drag-and-drop website builder that allows users to create their own websites using customizable templates and a variety of tools and features.
Since its founding, Wix has grown rapidly and now has over 200 million users in 190 countries. The company is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, and has offices in the United States, Brazil, Ukraine, India, and Lithuania.
In addition to its website building platform, Wix also offers a range of other services, including e-commerce tools, marketing and SEO tools, and web hosting. The company has won numerous awards for its innovative technology and has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in the world.
