Growing up in an Israeli Moshav (a type of cooperative semi-agricultural community), Gilad has always been surrounded by trees. Until today, his family still owns fruit orchards, which he is responsible to irrigate during the hot Israeli summer. Still, his greatest interest has been and still is economics and business. He holds an MBA from Tel Aviv University, worked for a few years in the Israeli Ministry of Finance, and in the last couple of years he runs his family business - Berlin Technologies. Gilad will provide Eco-Libris with his expertise and experience in business management and strategy, as well as a few tips on irrigation.
