As the head of the Florida-Israel Business Accelerator turns to a new venture in the region, FIBA will be pivoting at the start of the new year.
FIBA enters its fifth year in 2021 and was headed by Rachel Feinman, its executive director. She recently accepted a role as vice president of innovation at Tampa General Hospital and will be leading a $15 million, innovation-focused fund. She will finish with FIBA in November and start her new role in January 2021.
“I think it’s very natural and a very exciting move for her; we’ve been partnering with TGH very closely in the last couple years,” Rakefet Bachur-Phillips, FIBA’s former director of marketing, said. “Rachel was really a pleasure to work with, she brought a lot of great ideas and energy and we’re very excited for her new role — and also for our new structure and focus areas. We hope 2021 will be very busy but very successful.”
Rakefet Bachur-Phillips will now serve as co-executive director along with Pam Miniati. Jack Ross, who previously worked at FIBA before leaving to serve as COO with FIBA company StemRad, is returning as director of impact investment.
