    18 - Corona Crush

    18 - Corona Crush

    During every crisis, there’s room for opportunity. 

    Meet Ian and Bracha, two highly influential people in the Olim world who decided that feeling alone during these unprecedented times was not the only option. 

    Together, they created Corona Crush, a private Facebook Group, where members can post about single friends that are ready to e-mingle. 

    The word of mouth spread faster than they expected. The group now has over 13k members, from different corners of the globe - trying to find love and friendship during Covid times. 

    Listen to this episode to learn how to create something great, even when everything seems to be upside down.

    17 - Where does the funding for all these startups come from? [Before Corona]

    Sit back and relax. Let us take you on a trip to the past, before Corona times.

    We hope this episode recorded a few months ago, when everything was chill, will let you escape from your "which-day-is-it" routine.

    Now, let's turn up the beat! (I mean, continue reading but with a smile and a faster pace)

    For the first time in Hummus and Tech, we are covering the other side of the coin: where does the money to fund all the cool and innovative companies come from?

    Meet Lia, a Principal at UpWest, a Silicon Valley-based seed fund investing in Israeli startups, who will tell us all about the VC ecosystem in Israel.

    So if you ever had a failure, do not worry.

    14 - The X-Factor that Will Get You Hired with Leora @ Fuck Up Nights (Part 1)

    14 - The X-Factor that Will Get You Hired with Leora @ Fuck Up Nights (Part 1)

    Let us start by acknowledging that this was such an insightful conversation that we lost track of time and recorded for almost an hour. We didn’t want to leave anything out so we decided to split the episode in two.

    In this two-part episode, we sat with Leora Golomb who works at eBay as an Innovation & Tech Ecosystem Relations Manager and is also the Founder & Director of FuckUp Nights Tel Aviv.

    With that being said - just hit play to understand how to leverage your advantages as an Oleh when looking for a job, how to build a network from scratch and how to discover your X-Factor that will get you hired.

    13 - Are the best sellers born or made?

    What does it take to be a great seller in a hi-tech company? This is what we asked Shelbi, a Sales Team Lead at Guesty.

    Her story is quite particular: She learned about Guesty while on the Hummus Trail, and initially interviewed for another position.

    Tune in to discover how she got the job she wanted, and how you can incorporate the best traits from salespeople in your daily job, or job search.
