Full bio

Assaf ,33 , Israeli, worked as IP Lawyer in the past and was director of nonprofit organization that promote higher education.

Currently I am  the CEO & Co founder of Uni-Finder.LTD which launched www.ScholarGeek.org - a unique Worldwide Study Abroad & Scholarship Search engine

This Idea came to me after I got full scholarships from the E.U to study in Brussels. Belgium,  this experience changed my life  and opened my eyes in many ways  such as  learning about other cultures, different point of view, leaning to during Belgium beer, and also met my wife there:

 

.

I also got to know that are many scholarships that students don't know about them and takes forever to reach them

There is a need, today student dont know how to fins scholarships abroad

I decided to change this and to share with the world my life changing experience by changing other people life with helping reaching higher education abroad and to have amazing experiences 

 

p.s

Before that I was a board member of 2 students bodies and later I founded ILSA (Israel Law Students Association) and today I am the legal advisor of this nonprofit organization.

After finishing my LL.M at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, I worked in 2 best law firms in IP department.
