Head of Growth. Segasec | Tech Startup
Tel Aviv, IL
Originally from Manhattan, where he was an active participant in the Jewish community, Ian travelled to the University of Michigan after graduating from Ramaz School in Manhattan, where he studied business and served on the board of the campus Chabad. Post university Ian returned to Manhattan, where he worked in finance for three and a half years while actively involved with Chabad Young Professionals on the Upper East Side.
In 2015, Ian made Aliyah and began working in the hi-tech scene in Tel Aviv, first as an analyst in Venture Capital and now as Head of Growth for an early stage cyber security company.
In early 2017, Ian co-founded an organization called Olim in Tech. The purpose of Olim in Tech is to empower and connect Olim who work or want to work in the burgeoning Israeli hi-tech industry.
Compared with native born Israelis, Olim often find themselves at a major disadvantage when it comes to finding a job, networking, and generally advancing their career. Olim in Tech fills a much needed void in Israel, since many organizations do a good job at bringing Jews to Israel, but not many focus on helping them succeed in Israel. Ian is responsible for growing Olim in Tech through events, partnerships, and marketing.
