Some of the entrepreneurship headlines are just ridiculous - I blame content marketing

Startup landscape maps remain, in my opinion, one of the best ways to quickly scan an industry vertical and understand how it breaks down into sub sectors.
I just posted Israeli Startup Landscape maps on VC Cafe - check it out http://www.vccafe.com/2016/05/16/israeli-startup-landscape-maps/

I've just published a post on the impact of TechBikers since inception in 2012, including a photo essay of my trip to Nepal, where we visited a school impacted by the earthquake which we are helping rebuild. If you've ever participated in Techbikers as a rider, sponsor or donor - this is for you.

Story
Tagline
Founder of Campus London and Techbikers
Introduction
I'm a General Partner at Google Ventures Europe.

Before GV, I was the Head of Google for Entrepreneurs Europe, supporting startup ecosystems and helping them grow. In 2012, I've started and led Campus London, Google's first physical startup hub, providing founders with networking, learning and mentoring access, from Googlers, investors and thought leaders in the tech world. 

Prior to leading Campus, I was a strategic partnerships manager at Google, where I spearheaded several of Google's European commerce offerings including the launch of Google Shopping in Spain and Local Shopping in UK. Previously, I worked in a number of tech companies: I was Principal Product Manager of AOL Search in Europe, Senior Product Manager at Ask.com in San Francisco, Product Manager at Gerson Lehrman Group in New York and Team Leader at Shopping.com in Israel. Going back a bit, I co-founded a tech startup in Israel in 2003 and in 2005 I founded VC Cafe, a popular blog on early stage Israeli startups.

I have an MBA from London Business School and a BA in Business Administration, IT Management and Entrepreneurship from the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Israel

I'm also a trustee of Up Europe and serve on the advisory board of BBC Worldwide Labs. I'm a frequent public speaker on startups and innovation. 
Bragging rights
I created Techbikers (www.techbikers.com), a non-for-profit that brings together the tech community through cycling events, to support children's education in developing markets. So far in 2 years, we've raised more than £100,000 for Room to Read.
