Ronen is an angel investor, lawyer and startup strategist.
After working as a suit and tie corporate lawyer for over 4 years, fed up with how professional services were being delivered to young entrepreneurs, in 2015 Ronen founded LUNA - a startup studio helping startups, for-purpose businesses and social enterprises to launch and grow businesses, by offering a one-stop shop of startup strategy, legal, accounting and investment services.
Ronen lives and breathes startups and is extremely passionate about developing and supporting an ecosystem in Australia, in which young people can thrive in non-traditional careers. He does this not only through 400+ startups who have gone through LUNA but has also co-founded Mamilla – a mentor driven accelerator that pairs entrepreneurs with mentors and connects them with technology and startups in Israel.
Ronen is also regularly involved in speaking engagements and conferences, such as PAUSE, LaunchPad, Next Step, Nexus Australia Youth Summit, Foundation for Young Australians - Young Social Pioneers Program, and was selected to attend the prestigious ROI Innovation Summit in June 2015.
Additionally, he sits on the National Windscreens advisory board where he is the Head of Innovation and Digital Strategy.
Ronen holds Bachelors of Biomedical Science (Honours in Immunology) and Laws (Honours) and when not strategising with founders or running startup events, he can regularly be found satisfying his thirst for athletic challenges including an ice marathon in Greenland and a five day survival race in the Moroccan Sahara.
