My name is Lior Vaknin, I’m an Israeli entrepreneur and an Hasbara expert, and I’m on a mission to promote Israel’s Startup Nation activity in all 50 States, and share with local communities how Israeli tech can help us support and defend Israel in the best way possible, in face of the rising anti-Semitism and Anti-Israel activities across the country!
4 years ago, a little after arriving to the US, I saw an increasing demand of Israeli tech entrepreneurs and US businesses to connect with each other, and so I started Israeli Startups NYC.
With Israeli Startups NYC, I’ve held more than a dozen events, bringing thousands of people together, all in effort to build a better future for Israel, and the Israeli tech.
3 years after I started Israeli Startups NYC, New York City has much more awareness to the Israeli tech and there are number of really great initiatives, all focusing on this important cause.
As I am very happy to see it, I also feel that my work here is done and I should move to the next chapter in my journey.
That’s why, on June 1st 2017, I left New York and started a journey to share the sides of Israel people don’t usually hear about in the media.
How Israel’s Startup Nation phenomena is helping the American people in their everyday lives, and how proper education and awareness about Israel’s activity in the tech world, is the key to fight Anti-Semitism and the BDS groups.
