Roi Ben Daniel
Roi was born in Jerusalem to a religious family. His parents were a huge influence on him: he absorbed entrepreneurship from his father, while his mother taught him Jewish values. Roi serves as a Major (reserve) in the Strategic Unit, and previously led dozens of soldiers in combat in the Armored Corps, receiving two merits of honor for his service.
In his career, Roi has built innovation business units in Israel for two of the world’s biggest brands. At Coca-Cola, Roi co-founded its global innovation program, The Bridge, which started in Tel Aviv and has since expanded to other countries. In his current position at Visa, Roi leads Ventures & Partnerships activities in Israel, building Visa’s next generation of commercial and technological offerings to consumers, merchants, and banks.
Roi's pro-bono mission is to build a bridge between Israel and Poland. He does so by connecting the venture and tech communities on both sides, as well as working with government agencies to create and promote different partnerships and programs.
Roi holds a dual degree in Law and Accounting from Tel-Aviv University, and is currently an MBA candidate at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
