1/3

Participating in the Women of the Agrifood competition was a great way to tell others about my business, gain exposure, and find new customers. Being a part of the competition was the perfect opportunity to meet with knowledgeable business advisors. I was driven to organize and brainstorm potential business ideas. I feel so fortunate for this, and watching my dream transform into reality has been an amazing experience. Today, about a year after the competition, I am still in close contact with Carmit Oron and Dr. Lee Recht, both of whom have become my mentors.

More than 50% of agri-food research programs in Israeli academia are led by women, but few agri-food startups are female led.
