Start-up businesses and entrepreneurs will be glad to have people on their side in the Knesset.

I decided to form the lobby because I want to help entrepreneurs, who do not typically have a voice.

GKI owner, Gal Kalkshtein, has started a lobby group in the Israeli government with the purpose of supporting start-up businesses, entrepreneurs, and innovation. Israeli Politicians Yoel Hasson and Yoav Kish will stand as heads of the new lobby in the Knesset. The first gathering of the lobby will occur on October 23, 2015.

“I decided to form the lobby because I want to help entrepreneurs, who do not typically have a voice,” said Kalkshtein. “We plan to move very quickly with our initiatives. I would like to thank Mr. Hasson and Mr. Kish for their incredible support.”

As a serial entrepreneur and angel investor of start-up businesses in Israel, Kalkshtein is very familiar with the difficulties local high-tech and start-up communities face. Having worked in all the roles of a business—employee, team manager, entrepreneur, investor, and CEO—he has seen every side of the industry. He is very passionate about helping his country succeed and he believes it begins with supporting start-ups and entrepreneurs, which will create innovation.
