Caroline sits down with the “CrowdFundDiva” Audrey Jacobs to discuss the Israeli tech scene, investing in early stage tech companies and what it’s like to be a woman in Fintech.
A serial entrepreneur, public speaker and global community builder, Audrey believes startups who raise capital through equity crowdfunding should use the “crowd” to expand globally. Audrey started her first company in the late 80s and has been building companies, brands and tribes for more than 25 years. Through her lectures at investment conferences, startup incubators and universities, she educates investors about the risk and reward of investing in early-stage companies and entrepreneurs on how to raise capital. Prior to OurCrowd, Audrey spent 20 years building brands for technology companies with leading global public relations firms like Porter Novelli and launched the US Israel Startup Nation Series to create partnerships and educate about the opportunities of investing in Israeli innovation. Audrey has also completed the Nahum Goldmann Fellowship and the Seth Godin Alt MBA.
