Being awarded the 2011 Technology Pioneer from the World Economic Forum is a great opportunity to be part of the thought leadership process that is Davos. We’re about to join Summer Davos, in Dalian, the PRC, on September 14-16.

Last week, on July 7th, I had the great honor of participating in a face to face meeting with Israel’s President and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Mr. Shimon Peres, at his official residence.
This all came about as a function of TaKaDu’s participation in Maan’tech. Maan’tech is an Israeli coalition that promotes the employment of the Israel’s Arab population in high technology companies. It aims to boost the recruitment of Arab candidates into Israel’s leading high tech companies, which are a huge engine of growth for the economy as a whole. Its mission is to launch the natural integration of Arab employees into the Israeli high tech industry by supporting both candidates and employers throughout the entire recruitment process. TaKaDu’s strength lies in its employees, and as we strive for exceptional people and candidates, we deeply believe in the drivers underlying the Maan’tech vision.
We’re honored to be partners in the Maan’tech coaliation, which includes huge enterprises such as Cisco, HP, Intel, Google and … TaKaDu, which came to life in 2008 and is still a small company compared to the standards of these huge employers.
The objective of this specific meeting was to discuss the ideas and insights since the establishment of Maan’tech. There was optimism in the air. The inspiration of meeting the president further drove us to become part of this great potential change.
Amir Peleg, Founder and CEO of TaKaDu, was interviewed this morning by CNBC.
