A Return to Israel and a Return to Blogging

Its been quite a while since I last posted and quite a lot has happened since 2011. Right now I am sitting in the offices of Greylock Partners in Israel, where I work as a summer analyst. While working here I have had the chance to meet some awesome people and go to some great events. One such event was the Presidential Conference in Jerusalem where I heard from the likes of Shimon Peres, Bibi Netanyahu, Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Shai Agassi, Ofra Strauss, Yair Lapid and more. What this conference made me realize is that amazing transformation that has taken place in Israel. When my family left South Africa we chose America over Israel, because there were too many financial hardships involved in making aliya. While things are not all sunshine and rainbows in Israel today, the economy has grown and Israel now stands at the forefront of many fields. The speakers at the conference discussed what tomorrow will bring for Israel, and if Israel continues to grow like it has tomorrow will be very bright indeed.
