As part of this semester's speaker series, we were joined by Alex Goldstein, the founder and CEO of 90 West Consulting and a veteran of political, government, non-profit and business communications and strategy.
Alex spoke about the Israeli innovation system and the city of Boston as a juncture between Israeli and American entrepreneurs!
Prior to founding 90 West, Goldstein served as a senior political advisor to former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and as Governor Patrick's press secretary from 2009-2012. In 2011, Goldstein was the spokesman for the Patrick Administration's economic development mission to Israel that brought over 50 CEOs and business leaders to Israel. Goldstein also served as the business delegation spokesman for the Governor's May 2014 return mission to Israel that brought over 100 CEOs and business leaders to Israel — the largest ever state-wide business delegation from the United States.
Alex was also a strategic advisor for MassChallenge Israel’s startup accelerator launch in Jerusalem, is on the board of the New England Israel Business Council and the Anti-Defamation League, and is a lecturer at MIT’s Global Founders’ Skills Accelerator.
