Israeli-American Council (IAC) has announced the first national summit of its kind, IAC EDGE, which focuses on career development for Jewish and Israeli-American young professionals between the ages of 22 and 42. The summit will take place in Los Angeles on September 5.
Hundreds of attendees will come together to hear from and connect with leaders in real estate, health, media, entrepreneurship, technology, and other fields.
IAC EDGE said in a statement to the Journal that they hope to harness “the inspiration of Israeli entrepreneurship, innovation, and chutzpa to bring [attendees] closer to their roots and the Jewish state.”
“The IAC is thrilled to unite Jewish young professionals across the country around the spirit of disruptive Israeliness through career development programming that has never been offered in the Jewish world before,” IAC Co-Founder and CEO Shoham Nicolet said. “We hear all the time about how millennials are hungry for programs that will provide them with the hands-on tools to launch their careers. IAC EDGE is answering this call.”
Speakers at the Los Angeles summit will include Matthew Altman, Co-Star of “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” on Bravo, Ilana Golan, Board and General Partner at Homrun and Forbes Business contributor, and Gary Wexler, Award-Winning Creative Director & Professor at the University of Southern California. Speakers at the New York summit will include Moran David, Mobileye North American General Manager, Avi Cohen, Co-Founder and COO of LiveU, and Omer Zigdon, Founder & CEO of Zigdon Enterprises.
