Yarden Assa, the CEO and co-founder of UNBOXABLE, Gila Hayat, co-founder and CTO of Darrow, and Ranit Aharonov, CTO of Pangea Biomed, were selected along with movers and shakers at NVIDIA, Twitter and Spotify for consideration for the award.

Assa, who has a decade of experience starting and managing ventures, co-founded Irrational Innovations, which specializes in seed and late-stage technology investments in Saharan Africa.
