Historic UAE-Israel Deal Opens New Doors for OurCrowd
In December 2019 I became the first Israeli investor to appear on a public platform at a business conference in the United Arab Emirates. Since news of the UAE-Israel peace agreement broke on Thursday, I have been explaining to CNN, the Washington Post and other global media that this historic breakthrough paves the way for the UAE and Israel to create a partnership of prosperity that will warm the economies of both countries and transform the lives of millions in the region. Many of our problems transcend national boundaries, including water, food, disease and the environment. This agreement will accelerate rapid deployment of the latest innovation to fix the urgent issues facing us all.

Food Industry is Ripe for Disruption
Hot on the heels of Beyond Meat, the plant-based burger company that scored the most successful IPO of 2019, I see the beginnings of a non-dairy milk war.

Plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy have long been shown to be better for the consumer and for the planet. Check out my thoughts on how companies making plant-based alternatives are heating up in my latest Investors on the Frontlines LinkedIn Newsletter, which you can subscribe to receive regularly here.
