Here’s what they had to say

As a sector lead at Start-Up Nation Central, I get to be exposed to a wealth of innovative technologies and business models that I simply couldn’t be if I was working at a specialized company. I have the honor of working both at a strategic and a tactical level, interacting with most key stakeholders in the ecosystem: from gov entities, to multinationals, local corporations, startups & innovators and more. I think the local tech community recognizes and values people who gain such wide-spectrum experience.

Enabling the platform to work as an effective conduit between innovators and their clients, partners, and investors is extremely rewarding in itself, but the organization also knows how to reward its people in more direct ways…. Did anybody say beach party?

Every time I read a headline talking about the achievements of the Israeli innovation sector, I can’t help but feel I have a small part in it. Our work helps glue together the various parts of the puzzle that make up the ecosystem. Sitting in the heart of Tel Aviv surrounded by tech companies, also makes you feel like part of something bigger that’s taking place. The restaurant selection nearby is also second to none.
