Mr Amir Eldad

Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Builder, A2E Partners

Amir’s keynote on “Victoria as a global hub for innovation and entrepreneurship” covered the importance of global connectivity to drive innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystems, opportunities available for Victoria and the role veski connected community can play. 



Since 2010, Amir has taken an active role in multiple Boston-based start-up community initiatives, with a global touch, which led to his high-impact role at MassChallenge, as Director of Global Partnerships. During this time Amir has co-founded and expanded the worlds-largest start-up accelerator to key cities, including co-founding MassChallenge Israel early on and bringing it to Jerusalem more recently; playing a key role in establishing the new MassChallenge Switzerland hub in Geneva, and leading a high impact partnership between MassChallenge Boston and the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Lyon, France. 


Amir is consulting for Monash University, taking a Victoria-wide approach, about ways and programs to strengthen the Melbourne entrepreneurial ecosystem by international connectivity, initially to Boston and Israel.


Amir's role will build on his previous experience with MassChallenge (as Director of Global Partnerships) to help make the MassChallenge Bridge to Australia's Victorian hub program a success, and ensure it is strongly linked to the Victorian entrepreneurial ecosystem.


Based in Cambridge, MA - Amir leverages his strengths in the entrepreneurial communities in Israel, Boston, France, Switzerland and Melbourne (Australia) to help these cities achieve growth objectives through internationally-connected entrepreneurial ecosystems.
