WHO WE ARE
Rachael Ferm, Co-President, Midwest RD
I’m the Co-President of NU’s TAMID chapter as well as the Midwest Regional Director. My passion for the Israeli tech ecosystem was sparked while working at ImpactFirst, an impact fund incubated in Pitango, Israel’s largest venture capital group. Since, I helped an early stage Israeli company pilot it’s product in the American market in Northwestern, have worked for a tech-focused think tank, and started my own company with some Northwestern peers. TAMID is the perfect place to integrate my passions for technology, entrepreneurship, leadership and the Israeli innovation economy. I’m deeply excited about the direction that the organization is heading in and believe strongly in its future.
Aaron Strauss, Co-VP of Tech
TAMID has been the absolute perfect blend of my entrepreneurial passion with my love of Israel. At an early stage in college I knew I was interested in business, but TAMID gave me the tools to really build a strong analytical foundation. I learned the inner workings of what it meant to work on a consulting team, as well as how to pitch a stock for the first time. And the cherry on top came when my TAMID education culminated in the opportunity to spend an incredible summer working for a Fintech startup in Tel-Aviv.
Aaron Kamel, Co-VP of Fund
My name is Aaron Kamel and I am the VP of Fund. My job is to teach others Tamidniks about how one should invest one’s money and the different parts of the complex financial world. I work together with the Fund members to create stock pitches and hone presentation skills. I am studying economics and computer science because I am interested in technology and the financial world. As the VP of Fund, I combine my two majors and interests by keeping up to date on technology trends to see if I can create an investment thesis on the next big technology trend.
