The first-ever Forbes Under 30 Global Women’s Summit started in style in Tel Aviv on Sunday, as representatives of Forbes and leading summit attendees opened the trading on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

The four-day summit, which will welcome business and civil society leaders from across the world to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, will focus, organizers say, on women in leadership and entrepreneurship.

More than 200 people attended the opening bell ceremony, including the young men and women who have been named as bright business talents in various categories of the Forbes “30 under 30” list. This is the fourth consecutive year that Israel has played host to one of Forbes’ signature “30 under 30” summits.

“Over the next four days at the Forbes Under 30 Global Women’s Summit, we’re bringing together 500 visionaries from around the world: the US, Europe and Asia, the Middle East, Africa and, of course, Israel,” said Moira Forbes, executive vice president of Forbes and president of Forbes Women.

“Supporting the future aspirations of female leaders and breaking down systemic barriers to achieve those aspirations is critical to achieving greater economic vitality around the world and driving greater prosperity not just for women, but for everyone.”

In addition to presentations and workshops led by leading businesswomen, and hours of networking, the summit will also offer an Israeli food festival on the Tel Aviv beach, an exclusive after-party, and a night tour of Jerusalem’s Mahaneh Yehuda market.

Among those set to address the summit on Monday at Jaffa’s Peres Center for Peace and Innovation are philanthropist Lynn Schusterman, Rise founder and CEO Amanda Nguyen, Sodastream CEO Daniel Birnbaum, and Kinstep co-founder and  CEO Tenzin Seldon.

“We are delighted to host the opening of the Forbes ‘30 under 30’ Global Summit for the fourth year, which this year for the first time spotlights women,” said Netanel Oded, head of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange’s Business Development Unit.

“We believe that Tel Aviv is the capital of the ‘Start-Up Nation’ and that the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange is the natural venue for this type of event. We wish you a productive summit and we are pleased that brilliant men and women from around the globe will join together to promote innovation and research, serving as an inspiration to all of us.”
