In my recent TEDx Roma talk, I discussed two initiatives that are trying to make a difference through business. The first, Tmura – The Israeli Public Service Venture Fund, translates start-up company stock options into cash grants to education and youth non-profits in Israel.

The second initiative, which I co-founded with Palestinian entrepreneur Saed Nashef, is Sadara – The Middle East Venture Capital Fund. Sadara aims to help build a Palestinian technology ecosystem by providing financing and support to Palestinian tech entrepreneurs who are starting companies.

Both of these initiatives originate within the business community but have significant social impact. I invite you to watch — and share — my presentation:
