“As a Jerusalemite entrepreneur, who cares for the future of the city and its economic development, I appreciate the importance of initiatives like JBNF. Personally, even though I’m experienced with startups and entrepreneurships, I found the professional events organized by JBNF to be original and useful. In addition, JBNF offers an extraordinary opportunity for partnering and collaborating with other professionals and entrepreneurs, and I hope that together we will bring a true change to the biobusiness environment in Jerusalem.”
