a bit about me:
I'm an experienced business executive and a past entrepreneur. In my current role as Head of Technology Scouting Services at Deloitte Israel, I'm supporting large multinational companies when engaging with Israeli startups, scouting for collaboration, investment or acquisition, proof of concept (PoC), defining open innovation strategy, forming new partnerships and large scale projects of opening innovation or R&D centers.
Before joining Deloitte, I spent 11 years at IBM, while in my last role I've led IBM Israel's Startup & Developer Ecosystem team, and was responsible for IBM's first startup accelerator in the world ("Alpha Zone"). Before that, I've served in various positions such as Global Alliance Manager, Business Development Executive and Sales Operations Department Manager. I have an MBA from Tel Aviv University and B.Sc. in Software Engineering.
