Hey Jason, have you invested in startups from Israel already?
It seems to me that you already appreciate the chutzpah of the Israeli entrepreneurs, and know that many more good things will come out of here.
What will it take for you to decide to come to Tel Aviv?

It'd be nice if Manchester becomes the next city to host Launch. Unfortunately, our political climate is in such a huge shamble. In fact, our Union and, most importantly, democracy are being jeopardised by few individuals with eerie and selfish agenda. I am certain Launch would boost and invigorate our startup ecosystem. Please look into MediaCityUK. Thank you, Jason & the team et. al
