Event description

Description

We are delighted to welcome you to the inaugural Tech Friends of Israel London event. Through personal networks and events, TFI aims to promote Israeli and British technology collaboration as well as fight anti-semitism through facts and education.

The format for the evening will be two 15 minute talks, followed by Q&A and a casual drink / some snacks.

We are extremely lucky to have 2 special guest speakers for this event:

First, David Fogel, co-founder of ADV, will discuss “3 lessons we need to learn from Israel's technology culture" For 4 years David was Head of the Defence Systems on the Naval Command Ship, participating in over 50 operational missions. David also built Fintech and Telco products in Israel managing 55 engineers and since then worked for VC and M&A in Spain Germany and the UK. David started ADV 3 years ago raising 150m to invest in early-stage startups in the UK.

Following this, we will be addressed by Brian Doctor QC, an eminment and highly experienced commerical litigator & arbitrator. Brian will talk to us about "Modern antisemitism: it's causes and dangers for everyone in Britain". Brian moved to the UK from South Africa where he was a lawyer in the late 1980s and took silk here in the UK in 1999. His specialty is heavy cases, both in court and before arbitration tribunals involving complex legal issues.
