Empowering Women in Innovation: Unleashing Chutzpah


Join us for a captivating evening dedicated to empowering women in innovation as part of Women Month at Startup Grind. Our featured speaker, Inbal Arieli, is a dynamic force in the tech industry, renowned as a serial entrepreneur, tech influencer, author, speaker, and investor.

Born and raised in Israel, Arieli's entrepreneurial skills were honed during her mandatory military service, where she served as a lieutenant in unit 8200, the prestigious Israel Defense Forces' elite intelligence corps. With a wealth of experience in the flourishing Israeli tech sector, she has held prominent executive roles and founded programs to support innovators, further solidifying her reputation as a visionary leader.

Arieli will share her remarkable journey, revealing the roots of entrepreneurship and the essence of "chutzpah" (audacity) that drives innovation in Israel. Drawing from her bestselling book, "Chutzpah: Why Israel Is a Hub of Innovation and Entrepreneurship," she will provide valuable insights into what makes Israel a global center for groundbreaking ideas and how these principles can be applied to any entrepreneurial endeavor.

This event is an incredible opportunity to learn from Arieli's expertise, as she unveils the secrets of successful interviewers, shares invaluable lessons from transitioning from special forces to the boardroom, and imparts wisdom on unleashing the power of chutzpah in your own entrepreneurial journey.

Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur, business leader, or simply curious about the keys to success in the tech industry, this event promises to inspire, motivate, and empower. Join us for an evening of knowledge sharing, networking, and celebration as we honor the accomplishments of women in innovation and embrace the audacity required to make a difference in the world.
