I am pleased to announce that I am extending my stay in Jerusalem to now be living, and being part of the startup community for the months of July and August.

While I do make it to Jerusalem for one day trips – (it’s like going from San Antonio to Austin), I have only spent one night there, and thought it was time to actually live, experience, and contribute more to the community by being there.

By being in Jerusalem, I mean being part of all of the metro area, and telling the story of what I see through my narratives in the startup section of the The Times of Israel​ that are emerging in East Jerusalem, the Haredi (religious) community, the design community, the universities. I am going to cover the stories of the people who are moving or have moved there, building there, and doing so by choice – and with purpose.

I could list 20 or Jerusalem-based people who’ve been my guiding light in this decision, but more than anyone, I have to thank Robert D. La Gesse​ who believes and supports this initiative. If you want learn from a master who combines doing good, having business sense, and allowing for experimentation, you should follow and listen to Rob here on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
