On the 30th of November, TAU Trust hosted a special private reception hosted by Ambassador and Mrs Regev at their home for 65 invited guests to hear Uri Levine, a TAU alumnus and one of Israel’s most well-known tech entrepreneurs, speak on TITLE. His success story as a co-founder of Waze and his many other start-ups is rather extraordinary. On the evening, he spoke about his ideas, vision and passion to help people, be it finding solutions to traffic or saving money for consumers.
Ambassador Regev gave opening remarks and spoke about TAU’s strengths in educating young minds and the importance in investing in education and research. In attendance on the evening was TAU President Joseph Klafter, who said in his remarks, “TAU’s faculty are constantly looking for the next big idea for new drugs, security technologies, clean energy, fighting hunger, promoting social justice – and not just in Israel, but worldwide. Once there’s an idea, TAU nourishes it and nurtures it. The University has some 60 spinoff companies active right now, based on our researcher’s discoveries, and dozens more inventions in the development pipeline.”
TAU Chairman Richard Anton acted as the evening’s MC and also spoke about TAU’s excellence in the arena of the high tech industry.
