“Learning from Stanford University and Silicon Valley!“

Different ways for established family businesses to innovate, adopt and participate in technology:

  • How can radical technology trends and established family businesses successfully collaborate?
  • How to maximize the benefits of open collaborations.
  • How can technology transform every business and every aspect of our lives?
  • How to invest in the latest technology trends.


As a part of our ALPHAZIRKEL online conversation series on visions and practice for sustainable future developments, we are honored to discuss with two Stanford Professors and a Venture Capitalist who together formed an early stage fund in Silicon Valley, Honeystone Ventures, on how to successfully participate in new technology trends.

ALPHAZIRKEL Managing Partner Albert Geiger will discuss with representatives of the world’s tech hotspot:

  • Yossi Feinberg (Professor of Management and Professor of Economics at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University and Venture Partner at Honeystone Ventures)
  • Sarah A. Soule (Professor of Organizational Behavior, Senior Associate Dean at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Venture Partner at Honeystone Ventures)
  • Mani Honigstein (Managing Partner of Honeystone Ventures and Serial Entrepreneur)


Let us introduce:

Professor Yossi Feinberg’s recent studies focus on the strategic and organizational challenges of innovation in established organizations. Additionally, he has written case studies on disruption and innovation in companies such as Netflix, Nokia Software, Lloyds Bank, PMC -Sierra and Volkswagen. Yossi’s research focuses on reasoning in interactive strategic decisions and decision making in the face of unawareness. His thesis studied how differing prior beliefs of decision makers can be expressed by their disagreement on current (posterior) events. Yossi’s teaching interests include innovation and entrepreneurship.

Professor Sarah A. Soule is a highly sought-after speaker and commentator on the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion, organizational culture, organizational design, strategy, and leadership. Her articles geared toward a practitioner audience have appeared in the Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, and the California Management Review. She enjoys translating research into action with the goal of advising organizations on strategy and organizational design with the ultimate goal of achieving excellence.

Mani Honigstein is the Managing Partner of Honeystone Ventures. He also is a serial entrepreneur having co-founded Uplandme, RocketPlay (sold to AGS) and Maxwell Financial Labs. Prior to living in Silicon Valley, he was investor at Pitango Venture Capital, Israel‘s largest Technology Fund.
