Yazamiyot End of The Year Startup Contest – Event Recap
End of the year party was a real fun, wow so many people came I’m impressed 🙂 I think it’s a great moment for me to summarize my 2017.
It’s hard to believe that a year has past since I have started managing Yazamiyot – Women Entrepreneurs Community. Since I answered Hilla’s call, since I started helping her in managing this unbelievable community.
I could never imagine how much I will be invested in Yazamiyot. And here I am, thanks to Hilla Ovil Brenner, the founder of Yazamiyot, my partner, my teacher, and my friend. I want to express my appreciation to Hilla, an inspiration to all of us here in Yazamiyot.
I’m really thankful for the great pleasure of meeting and interacting so many outstanding women & ambitions women, with dreams, passion, skills and talents.
