Field Notes: Day #4 from Rackspace Hosting Hosting Startups Week in Jerusalem….

I love returning to PICO Jerusalem​.

Ever since I began my adventure in Israel, Isaac S Hassan​ has always opened up the space to be one of my homes away from home.


PICO is home to startups, service providers, independent consultants and VCs like Ben Wiener​, Elie Wurtman​, and most recently, Danna Hochstein Mann​. I also ran into my buddy, Margot Madeson-Stern​ who’s doing cool stuff in clean tech.

There is an incredible bakery/restaurant just two floors down in an industrial building that is very fitting for a collection of innovators and builders making and creating new companies.

Here is one of the entrepreneurs I met with today – Zack Isakow. I can’t get into what he’s working on, but he has dream for a marketplace that I don’t believe exists.

Tomorrow, I head to Q5​ – run by the good people at Made in Jerusalem​.

This is Jerusalem. The Nation’s Capital. It’s #BuiltToLast.
