Hear some of the stories about why a tiny country, easy to miss on the map, is making enormous strides in innovation and creativity every single day. Real-time navigation, cars that can see, 3D sensors for breast cancer, glasses that help the blind see... learn more about these and other Israeli solutions now changing lives around the world. Viva Sarah Press has worked as a journalist for more than two decades. Born and raised in Canada (and daughter of shul members Cyril Press and Anita Shir-Jacob), Viva immigrated to Israel in 1998 and lives with her family in Tel Aviv. She has served in senior editorial positions at IBA News – Israel Television, ISRAEL21c and The Jerusalem Post. She hosted a radio show on tech trends and served as a television panelist. For the last eight years, Viva’s work has focused on Israeli creativity and innovation in technology, health, culture, travel, environment and social action. She has represented Israel at the CNN International Fellowship and ACS Global Journalist Fellowship. Over the years, Viva has interviewed dozens of CEOs, CTOs, innovators, creators, and risk-takers from first ideas to successful startups. Please note that her talks are not sponsored by any company and do not represent corporate interests.
