Moshe (Boogie) Ya'alon, has entered the business world and will head SYNAPTECH, a new Israeli-owned venture capital fund to be established in the United Arab Emirates. Synaptec, founded by the Avnon Group and strategic partners from the Gulf region, will invest in about 20 young start-ups with the aim of bringing the spirit of the Israeli start-up Nation to the Emirates and realizing the business potential in the defense industry between the two sides.
