Liam Brien, Cardinal SolutionsLiam learned about FIBA after he overheard Rakefet Bachur speaking Hebrew at a local BBQ restaurant. He reached out to say hi and Shana Tova and Rakefet invited him to attend the next Meeting of the Minds event. He has been involved ever since, not only attending events, but actively offering advice and hospitality to the Israeli entrepreneurs. “I love this low-key, casual, fun event where people are really getting to know each other and introducing each other to their respective cultures and companies,” says Liam. Meeting of the Minds is a bi-monthly FIBA event for young professionals. The goal of the events is to engage young professionals, who are interested in Israel, innovation, entrepreneurship and growing the business community in Tampa Bay, with Israeli entrepreneurs and innovation. The Israeli companies come to meet Tampa locals and to talk about their businesses in a relaxed environment. Through past events, connections were made, friendships were created and some business opportunities have developed. Light refreshments and drinks will be available.
