Yadin Kaufmann

Many articulate a desire for peace in the Middle East, but few have demonstrated a life-long commitment to the cause quite like today’s guest, social entrepreneur, Yadin Kaufmann.


After graduating from Harvard Law, Yadin spent his post juris doctorate days in the Israeli Supreme Court, then joined Israel’s very first venture capital firm, Athena. Yadin was an early investor in high-tech and ultimately realized that this was the vehicle he could use to navigate a historical problem. He also decided that the best thing he could do with his hard-won knowledge was share it — with Israelis and Palestinians alike.
