Sylvan Adams

Businessman

Sylvan Adams, a Canadian philanthropist and former real estate developer, has funded meaningful activities in both Canada and Israel, where he now resides. He is one of the major funders of SpaceIL, the non-profit organization that worked toward landing the first Israeli spacecraft on the moon. Adams, a competitive road and track cyclist, founded the Sylvan Adams Cycling Network in Tel Aviv to promote the sport in Israel, and invested in the Sylvan Adams Sports Institute at Tel Aviv University campus -- an effort "to enable Israel to be the startup sporting nation," said Adams. He is also a co-owner of the Israel Cycling Academy, the nation’s first professional cycling team, and sponsored the building of the Sylvan Adams Velodrome in Tel Aviv, the first Olympic velodrome in the Middle East.
