I came to San Francisco because I wanted to be in the hub of the startup ecosystem and get into Venture Capital. Given this specific industry, building a network is substantial to getting access to good deals. At USF, I really appreciated that in the first week of classes we dove straight into learning the networking effect, which taught me skills to develop an international network with VCs and investors in the Bay Area, Israel and Europe. This eventually led me to land at Porsche Ventures in the Bay Area upon graduation."
