I am returning to Israel again, and will be in the country May 16 – June 22. Part of the trip will be dedicated to exploring and connecting the dots in Israel’s IoT ecosystem.
Having worked with Israeli companies on massive industry standards and the teams who helped shape what became VoIP, IPTV, and Wi-Fi, I am of the belief that IoT will touch every significant part of StartupNation’s creative and innovation economy.
My goal is to figure this out and help this layer of the economy win – and win big time.
I am doing this in my role as a Senior Advisor and Brand Ambassador for James Brehm & Associates, one of the leading consultancies in the field.
Today, I am pleased to announce that the firm’s founder, James Brehm, will be coming to Israel May 22 – 26. We are setting up some terrific meetings with startups, VCs, service providers, carriers, industry organizations, R&D teams at universities, and government officials who are part of the IoT space.
I have known James for 20 years and have always admired his work and foresight in corporate roles in the technology space, and most recently with two consulting and advisory services firms.
James is a rock star in the U.S. You will see him on CNBC, speaking at major conferences and events, and is published in major industry media.
Two years ago, he formed his own firm, and now has a wonderful team of ten people of which I am an adjunct member of the firm.
When I returned to the U.S. from my engagement with Rackspace, I started to explore new ways where I could live and work part time in Israel while still maintaining my home and ties with my friends and family in the U.S. James and I caught up and started to explore the idea of becoming aligned with a common vision—and now, we’re moving forward.
We have some incredible clients that include the likes of communications services providers, hardware manufacturers, software vendors, OTMs and OTMs, private equity firms, VC firms, and investment bankers.
If you are creating and building the future, or just want to learn about how your company could leap forward by looking at how IoT could add value in what you are doing, let me know.
On a personal note, this will mark my 54th time to Israel. Yes, I keep track. Having done this back and forth thing, for what is going on 23 years, I feel so blessed to be part of the what is on the horizon and a little further ahead.
I am posting this story in case I have missed someone who we should meet; you can share this post or message me / email me – email@example.com with a suggested introduction.
Maybe we can help you in some way.
