Ayelet was born and raised in Haifa, Israel. She was brought up on the ideals of giving back to the community, helpfulness, and the belief that people are fundamentally good. Those principles guided Ayelet throughout her life and led her to volunteer for national service before joining the army. As part of her military service, she served as chief of staff to the brigade commander of the Southern Command, Gaza. Ayelet earned a B.A. in Jewish history and political science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It was during her studies that she first encountered the world of entrepreneurship, first as the marketing and community manager at Siftech, the first startup accelerator in Jerusalem, and then working as the manager of Jnext at the Jerusalem Development Authority. It was as founder of the Google Educators' Groups and former manager of Google Teacher Academy in Israel, that she finally connected her three passions of community, innovation, and education. She continues to do so in her current position as the director of Jerusalem activities at Start-Up Nation Central, where she developed and manages a strategic program to support the growth of the local tech ecosystem. True to her upbringing, Ayelet continues to run social initiatives on a volunteer basis. She is a co-founder of DaDa, Creative seminars and workshops to promote lifelong learning approaches; a co-leader of 30±, cultural events for young adults in Jerusalem whose activities were attended by nearly 30,000 participants in 2017; a member of the "Open Holidays" steering committee and an initiator and facilitator of a Jerusalem interdenominational dialogue group.
