Lauren Frisch is no stranger to Israel. Majoring in International Studies in college and minoring in Modern Hebrew Language, she studied abroad in Jerusalem for five months at Hebrew University. The following summer, she served as an intern in the media and public diplomacy office of the State Department’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, which includes Israel.
It should be no surprise then that Frisch still spends her time in support of Israel business relations through her work with Conexx. As an Associate Attorney at Berman Fink Van Horn, she also belongs to Conexx’s Young Professional networking group.
“Conexx provides varied, interesting programming that actually gets me excited to go out and network,” said Frisch. “When you meet someone at a Conexx event, you know that you are both there because you believe in the value of a strong bi-national partnership between Israel and the U.S. and because you can’t wait to learn about the amazing ways Israeli companies are redefining various markets. Naturally, these conversations lead to more personal discussions about your work and ways you can provide value to other Conexx members.”
Shortly after joining her firm 2017, Frisch joined Conexx. While her favorite annual event is the Conexx Gala, she really enjoys the Young Professional events.
“My favorite event was the Conexx Young Professional’s Night at the Atlanta Hawks where we learned all about how the Philips Arena team utilizes the technology of Israeli companies such as Waze to alleviate traffic to and from the Arena during events.”
Frisch’s company and Conexx both have a lot in common-they are business-focused and committed to results-oriented relationships.
“Berman Fink Van Horn is a group of entrepreneurial lawyers that help clients run their business successfully. We help start and grow businesses, as well as avoid and resolve the issues that arise along the way,” said Frisch. “If you are looking to avoid a potential conflict or are already in the midst of one, we’re here to provide the guidance necessary to help you achieve your goals.”
Speaking as to why people should become members of Conexx, Frisch sites the events for being inspiring and fun. Plus, “it is a well-organized network of accomplished professionals who understand the unique exceptionalism Israeli companies bring to the market.”
