Honestly one of the most fascinating meetings I’ve had in a long time.
My original meeting had to cancel and Alisa Gevirtz had just written me that she enjoyed my talk yesterday in Tel Aviv and would love to meet. When my meeting canceled, I wrote Alisa and told her that if she could come to Hertzliya in the next hour, we can meet. She showed up.
What a remarkable story she has. Engineer, Swiss diplomat, actress; and... the first woman to ever drive a Ferrari F40.
Alisa, despite endless professional opportunities around the world, felt her home was here, in Israel. Despite no network or leads, she moved here and is now building it all from scratch.
Her elevator pitch is that she always operated in the intersection of technology; business, and communication. She wants to help take a local tech company from product to business to brand.
Deeply impressed with Alisa. Reach out if you think it’s relevant. Alisagivertz @gmail.com

Looking forward to Pitch @Palace Africa, a fantastic platform celebrating some of the most talented and innovative entrepreneurs and startups from across Africa.
Last year I had the pleasure of mentoring Pitch @Palace Africa winners @amamaOpe I continue to work with and support them remotely and I'm hoping to get out to Uganda this year to visit them.
They've created an IOT blanket that prevents the misdiagnosis and late detection of pneumonia in Children and they are working hard to scale their startup and dramatically reduce the >500k annual child pnemounia deaths in Sub Saharan Africa.
Africa has an abundance of talented people, exciting ideas and fantastic startups, it's great to see innovation that will solve issues in Africa, being developed and scaled in Africa by African people.
For too long there has been a patronising perception and missionary-esque treatment of Africa and for me it's really about empowerment, believing in and supporting African people to achieve greatness independently.
It's great to see this starting to happen and is another reason why I support Pitch @Palace which provides a fantastic platform for entrepreneurs from across the world to showcase their excellence, make high level connections and raise their profile. ♥️🌍

Step aside, #Filecoin, because the #Telegram #ICO has quietly shattered the #blockchain-based #fundraising record.
According to a document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last week, the Telegram ICO has raised $850 #million since Jan. 29, when the #token sale officially began.
The filing reports that only #81 investors contributed to the #funding round, pegging the average individual #investment at just below $10.5 million.
Telegram reported its ICO under Rule 506(c) of Securities Act Regulation D, which stipulates that unregistered securities issuers may raise an unlimited amount of money and generally advertise the offering as long as they restrict contributions to accredited investors, file a report with the SEC, and prevent investors from selling their stakes for a predefined vesting period of either six months or one year.
As #TechCrunch noted, this likely marks the conclusion of Telegram’s ICO presale — not the main event itself — and the company is free to hold subsequent funding rounds as long as it records them with the SEC.
Telegram has not been publicly forthcoming with its goals for the token sale, but the firm had reportedly targeted $600 million during the presale — a figure it bested by 42 percent — and intends to raise more than $1.2 #billion by the ICO’s conclusion.
Filecoin, the previous leader in ICO fundraising, netted $257 million during a token sale that ended last September.
A 132-page document — purportedly a leaked copy of the Telegram Open Network ( #TON) #whitepaper — states that the firm intends to launch a “third generation blockchain” that will achieve scalability by pairing a master chain with 2-to-the-power-of-92 sidechains.
#Cryptocurrency developers and investors have raised serious questions about the #project, but, clearly, these reservations have not hindered the project from attracting investors with #deep #pockets. #tezos #eos #sirinlabs #bancor #polkadot #qash #status #envion

A great quote from a fellow Italian-American that i admire. Our successes and failures are all about forging our own paths in life. Don’t get caught up by lack of action and stand on the sidelines and watch your life go by. Be bold, dare, start living to your potential. Don’t hesitate to start your own journey. After all, you have one life and you might as well take advantage of it... @craig_cecilio

It takes fearlessness to be first, to not move with the crowd, to take risks and to trailblaze your own path, whilst being authentically you.
Whether you achieve highly or not, you will get scrutinized by those who do move with the crowd, they will mock you and make you look bad, in order to make themselves look good.
Hold the vision and trust the process.
