Israeli Ambassador Nominated for Grassroot Diplomat Awards

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ambassador Daniel Taub of the Embassy of Israel has been nominated for the first ever Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Awards. The award looks to recognise outstanding diplomats and politicians in the UK for their dedication, commitment and selfless efforts in representing civilian matters at the highest level.

Nominated under the Business Driver category, Ambassador Taub has actively supported young start-ups and entrepreneurs in and out of the UK. The Ambassador is very keen to develop enterprises led by young people and has created avenues for such entrepreneurs to pitch to investors and companies for funds and potential contracts. In the last 2 months, the embassy has opened up investments worth up to £15 million for start-ups and continues to make it a priority to take delegations of mixed nationalities working on business projects.

Talyn Rahman-Figueroa, Director of Grassroot Diplomat said, “Grassroot diplomacy empowers the voiceless, defines a path for the hopeless, and restores faith to influencers. The Initiative Award seeks to build trust again between the ‘us and them’ and bring people of all statuses together.”

Ambassador Taub is committed to developing businesses for young entrepreneurs, and for this, his efforts are being recognised here.

Over 50 high-level government officials have been nominated in 3 categories but there can only be six winners. Join Ambassador Daniel Taub and other government nominees at the Vincent Rooms, Westminster with evening performance led by Euro-Vision Song Contest artist, Imaani.
