Conexx October Leadership Message

In the two years since the rebranding of Conexx: America Israel Business Connector, our organization has experienced banner growth. As called for by our strategic plan, we have successfully implemented new programs, connectors and groups. We’ve led more and more expeditions to Israel, made new strategic partnerships and friendships and we’ve added new and talented staff to lead these exciting initiatives.

After two years of intense growth, we are now implementing a new initiative: the 2016 Campaign. In order to sustain Conexx’s operations and incredible growth we need your financial support.

Why Should You Give to Conexx?
Conexx is an organization that supports Israel in modern and innovative ways. Our dedication to and support for Israel is rooted in facilitating important pathways to business-driven relationships among diverse groups of men, women and the next generation of Israel supporters in the southeast and the Startup Nation. All of these efforts result in a profound and long-lasting impact on the ways in which they and their companies establish and maintain positive views of Israel.

Conexx connects people to Israel who might not otherwise be connected in real and tangible ways that are different from most other organizations. We engage with and guide governments, companies, academia, and other organizations that might not otherwise demonstrate an interest in or affiliation to Israel. It is through these activities that companies and organizations in the southeast start to understand that capitulating to pressure to avoid Israel is not in their best interests.

Conexx is also able to work directly with Israelis. Our organization promotes and encourages Israeli companies, including many high-tech companies, to learn about the many advantages the southeast has to offer and we encourage them to become part of the local, innovation-focused community. As part of our mission, Conexx supports Israeli innovators and entrepreneurs as they enter the US market and helps them to become inspiring ambassadors for Israel’s contribution while creating value on both sides.

Our Programs
Conexx’s outreach and programming has grown beyond our historical activities. These are just a few of the exciting groups, programs and events we have created and accomplished in recent years.

  • Missions to Israel
    In the last 15 months, Conexx has taken several important and strategic groups to Israel. We were proud to lead Tennessee Governor Haslam and his staff on an economic mission and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed as a participant on the Cybersecurity mission. From the South Carolina-Israel Collaboration to BioMed, every delegation that Conexx has taken to Israel presented tremendous business and R&D opportunities for both Americans and Israelis. Over the years we have taken over 150 people to Israel. Our next mission, the Conexx Business Expedition is set for November 6. Learn more.
  • Conexx Women
    The Conexx Women group has far exceeded anyone’s expectations. Powerful women from all over the southeast from all industries and businesses have come together to create a dynamic and interesting group. This group connects them personally to Israel in the way only Conexx can. Our most recent event took place in Charleston, SC and saw Anita Zucker, Conexx’s past Eagle Star honoree as well as Elizabeth Colbert-Busch as they discussed opportunities for businesswomen and the impact of Israel.
  • Young Professionals
    This newest group has grown quickly and it is truly inspiring to see so many young professionals come together and connect to Israel through business, innovation and technology. Our next program on November 17 will feature Steve Koonin, CEO of the Atlanta Hawks. Join our young professionals and entrepreneurs to hear the inspiring story of how this lifelong Atlantan ascended from UGA student into a professional sports CEO by way of marketing positions at Coca-Cola and 14 years as president of Turner Entertainment Networks. Register and learn more.

Israel will continue to need our support, in every way possible and Conexx is an opportunity for you to support Israel and Israelis in a way no other organization does. This year, please consider giving to Conexx so that we can continue our mission: To connect Americans and Israelis through business.
