I'm living in Israel, where entrepreneurship is our mother tongue. I founded my first business when I was only 15. Every morning, I took my bicycle to distribute more than 1000 rolls in my neighborhood. By 7 a.m., I was taking a quick shower before rushing to school. After that positive experience, I initiated five other businesses, two of which were startups. One failed, and one continued running as a small business.
For the past twenty years, most of my professional life has revolved around startups and entrepreneurship. I was involved in developing collaborations between Israeli corporations and startup companies. I guided many startups in their business development, I mentored dozens of entrepreneurs and startups in early-stage ventures and taught hundreds of students in academia.
