Shalom Ben Or
Co-Founder & CEO of Avenews
Shalom is the co-founder and CEO of Avenews. As a typical member of a Kibbutz, an Israeli agricultural community, Shalom grew up in the citrus groves working closely with farmers, gaining first-hand experience of the difficulties in agricultural business. Years of working in agriculture brought Shalom to an understanding that the outdated methods that characterize trade in agricultural produce result in a broken connection between the agricultural industry and the banking sector. This broken connection is reflected in a $440B agri-financing gap across the globe. Shalom’s passion for agriculture and his various degrees (L.L.B., with a specialization in corporate law and a B.A. in Economics with a minor in finance) led him to build Avenews, a digital agribusiness management platform that creates an infrastructure for financial institutions to provide services to their agribusiness customers who operate across supply chains in emerging markets. Shalom is committed to creating new and better ways to connect between the banking sector and the agricultural industry, and today, Avenews works with Africa’s largest banking groups to bridge the gaps and finance agricultural businesses across the continent.
