JNS.org – Forbes magazine announced Tuesday that it will host its Under 30 EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) Summit in Israel for the first time in April 2016.

The conference is expected to bring together some 600 young entrepreneurs, with 200 from Europe, 200 from the U.S., and 200 from Israel. The summit has been hosted in Philadelphia for the past two years. It will include presentations, speeches, a pitch competition, and cultural immersion opportunities in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

Rafi Rosenfeld and Nir Barzilay, the publishers of Forbes Israel, said they are “happy and proud to be a part of the first international conference of its kind, which will bring 600 of the most influential young people in the world to Israel.” The choice to host the conference in Israel is a vote of confidence from the world’s leading financial magazine, they said.

Randall Lane, editor of Forbes magazine, said, “We look forward to bringing our successful Under 30 Summit to the EMEA region, and there is no better place than the ‘start-up nation,’ where innovation is at the core of everything that is going on.”

  • Dear Rafi Rosenfeld and Nir Barzilay,
    I am very happy that you are bringing the successful Under 30 Summit to the EMEA region, and there is no better place than the ‘start-up nation,’ where innovation is at the core of everything that is going on.” I am begging you to please also include me as an Israeli inventor even though I am 66 years old! I have been creating non stop since my 20’s and have just created a new artistic but extremely internationally useful product line. I have already made several samples of the 17 designs(at present and many more on the back burner) and am extremely eager to see them selling in a wide variety of shops and sites, but desperately need advertising, promotion and sales. Please agree that I deserve the same opportunity as my young piers…even more so since they have their lives ahead of them and for me; this is my last big bang! Appreciatively yours, Agi Shani
