Yoni Buckman joins UpStart with a passion for Jewish innovation, informal teen education, and intentional organizational leadership.
Yoni got his first taste of entrepreneurship working in a Jerusalem-based online marketing startup before starting a home cleaning business in Maryland. Integrating his love of Judaism, entrepreneurship, and teen education, Yoni developed and taught a teen Jewish social entrepreneurship program while working in the education department of DC synagogue, Adas Israel.
Since moving out to Denver in October 2017, Yoni adopted a puppy and worked at a local synagogue before joining the UpStart team. He looks forward to once again engaging and empowering young Jewish leaders to create meaningful and intentional spaces in Colorado.
