As a native Texan, born in Dallas, and where San Antonio has been my home for thirty years, I was pleased to connect in Jerusalem with Texas Governor, Greg Abbott this morning at The King David Hotel in Jerusalem.

The Governor was in Israel to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu and business leaders to advance business and economic ties and direct investment in Texas.  He will then be headed to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Myself being from San Antonio, we touched on subjects like Geekdom, Techstars Cloud, and Accelerate H20 — all programs which have great potential and ties with Israel’s startup and innovation economy.
