2019 Hazon Sustainable Israel Tour: Impact Investing

Join Hazon in Israel next May for an exciting opportunity to understand impact investing and sustainability in a myriad of ways.

At 70 years old Israel has never been stronger. The booming tech and innovation sectors, as well as the world-class food scene, continue to grow exponentially, but at the same time, it is a country beset by many challenges. These challenges, both external and internal, are universal but also particular to the unique Jewish character of the state and the difficult physical constraints of its geography.

With the theme of “Israel’s challenges mirroring the larger global environmental issues we all face” in mind, our carefully crafted and customized itinerary will bring you into the heart of the environmental issues facing Israel. We have designed this trip to focus on several of the most compelling areas of innovation and investment specifically; climate change, water, and food security. We will spend time exploring, discussing, and seeing how Israelis are creating solutions for all of the above by engaging with visionaries, practitioners, and investors at the intersection of impact investing and environmental sustainability.

Highlights include:

  • Meet with leaders and up & coming environmental startups in the West Bank
  • Together with OurCrowd, a leading equity crowdfunding platform, we will connect with a wide range of companies changing our future for the better and have dinner with the CEO, Jon Medved
  • Night bike ride around the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem
  • Dialogue with the first Bedouin impact investor and hear his vision for the future of his community
  • Cocktails and dinner with Israeli peers in the impact investing world, from entrepreneurs to venture capitalists
  • Learn to surf with a project that helps local at-risk youth
