Shai Agassi and Michael Granoff to receive 2010 Asper Award.

Published: 19-Mar-2010

Shai Agassi, the Israeli entrepreneur who has vowed to bring user-friendly electric vehicle power to the world, will explain his ambitious vision and his strategy to an audience at Brandeis this month.

Agassi is co-winner of this year's Asper Award, given annually by the Brandeis International Business School to entrepreneurs "who have demonstrated exemplary citizenship, creativity, innovation, and business success."

The other winner is Michael Granoff, an Israeli investor who believed in Agassi's vision, invested in it -- and has helped raise hundreds of millions more from other investors to try to turn the idea into reality. Granoff is president of Maniv Energy Capital.
