Shalom from the White City YKC community … A heat wave is gripping the country (and it seems like the rest of the world as well). It’s August so the content will be light this month as many people are traveling.
A big thank you to all those who attended the first Upstream Made in Israel Mixer powered by inTulsa and hosted at Samsung NEXT last week. It was fun meeting and chatting with new friends. Thank you to all those who attended and supported, be on the lookout for future digital and IRL events.
If you’re a growing Israeli startup and looking to hire high-skilled workers in the US let’s chat about how I can help you find that talent (ex., SDRs and customer success) in Tulsa. To schedule a time to meet please respond directly to this email. Also, for companies seriously considering hiring in Tulsa I’m hosting a private reception later this month so reach out directly to me about that as well.
Community Ask: I’m looking to connect with an editor at TechCrunch, Axios, or Business Insider regarding an article on Israeli tech I have (a “scoop” that I can speak about offline). If you can help me that would be greatly appreciated!

SoftBank a big believer in Israeli high-tech, says former Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen: Despite the legitimate concerns regarding the spread of the Delta variant, events and conferences are happening in Israel. I was in Jerusalem for the day so sadly I missed this conference, but Calcalist does know how to put on good events with quality content.
While Softbank has invested in growing Israeli companies in the past it is a testament to the continued public intersection of business (venture) and politics here in Israel. While the headlines focus on NSO Group’s sale of cyber weapons globally, it’s not really anything new… it’s just the timing is not great now. The Startup Nation is flooded with money, and while it used to be those massive budgets and the military were the catalysts of innovation, the private sector has been driving that for the past few years. In Israel it gets even more complicated in an ecosystem of cross pollination between the military/business/academia.
Despite the politics the dirty secret for many in Silicon Valley is that the root of a lot of current technology (and funding) came from the military/government. In Israel that conversation is public, but it’s still a balancing act, especially when that tech lands in the wrong hands, and is used for nefarious reasons.
Key Takeaways:
⚪️ Venture is a political catalyst: Most of the social networks which ignited political change were venture backed.
⚪️ We need to be proactive regarding regulation: NSO Group is playing by the SV playbook of not asking for permission (but not asking for forgiveness).
⚪️Bad tech PR won’t sink the Startup Nation: But it’s not helping our image globally as well.
