Governor heads to Israel with Tampa business accelerator in tow


    Israel has become well-known over the years for its pro-business techniques and innovative companies and the governor wants to mimic that with Florida — and is bringing along some extra local help.

    Gov. Ron DeSantis will be taking his first trip to Israel as governor and Rachel Feinman, executive director for the Florida-Israel Business Accelerator program in Tampa, will be traveling right alongside him. This is her second trip with the government, after accompanying former Gov. Rick Scott to Israel last year.
