SGI56: Overcoming Biases, Embracing Diversity, and Building Strong Businesses and Nonprofits


Starting a nonprofit or entrepreneurial endeavor requires people, commitment, ideas, and possibly a little bit of luck. Tamar Kedar Harris, from NGT3 based in Nazareth, Israel, shares about her experiences working with startups in a tech incubator with a social mission. We talk about some of the unique dynamics of working in Israel, the value of diversity, and some of the key components of founding a successful organization.

The key points covered in this podcast discussion are:

  • Business and nonprofit success is all about the people.
  • What we have in common is so much bigger than what separates us
  • Founding an organization takes time
  • It’s not possible to do it on your own
  • Overcoming biases and embracing diversity is extremely beneficial for business
