High Tech Entreprenuer, Nir Barkat, is Jerusalem’s New Mayor

November 24, 2008 by  

Nir Barkat, 49 years old, has spent his entire life in Jerusalem and served six years in the Israel Defence Force, as a member of the paratrooper’s brigade. In 1988, Nir Barkat founded the BRM Group, one of the first entities worldwide to develop anti-virus software and, as CEO, initiated joint ventures with U.S. companies such that BRM became a technological incubator. At the beginning of 2000, Nir was a founding partner of BRM Capital, a $150 million Venture Capital Fund focusing on software and communication infrastructures, specializing in investments in Israeli related companies and helping them become global leaders in their field.

Zion Oil & Gas Founder, John Brown, met Nir Barkat in Washington, in July 2008, during Christians United for Israel’s Third Annual Washington-Israel Summit, when Zion Oil sponsored the “Night to Honor Israel” banquet.
