Itamar Weizman is an entrepreneur the сo-founder of Cool Cousin, a travel app that connects users with locals who provide them with personal city maps, tips and secrets. He was also one of the founders of the V15 movement to replace the Netanyahu government in Israel’s 2015 elections.

In this interview with Yuval Regev for the Telavivian podcasts, Weizman talks about the rough process of “loosing the elections” and leaving political activism for Tel Aviv’s start-up sector. He elaborates on Tel Aviv as a “bubble of liberalism and business development” and explains what he believes to be the crisis of the Israeli left.

“Because of the political, cultural and philosophical gap between Tel Aviv and the rest of Israel, the city still needs to develop its identity. It will take time for Telavivians to be proud of who they are.”
