He's spent time with the founders of WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Google, Didi, Spotify, Xiaomi, Nest, Twitter and countless other ambitious startups from Tel Aviv to Shenzhen (and has invested in many of them too), and recently launched Voyagers.io, a non-profit taking amazing people for weekend adventures designed to build close community..
