Tinder co-founder Sean Rad will be speaking at Forbes’ Under 30 Summit in Israel.

The invitation-only event brings together 750 of the “world’s most influential young entrepreneurs” for a five day summit.

And Rad, who now heads Tinder’s Swipe Ventures project, is part of the first round of speakers announced this week by Forbes.

He joins internet entrepreneur Yossi Vardi, PlayTech founder Teddy Sagi, Lokai founder & CEO Steven Izen and Invictus Chairman and CEO Obinwanne Okeke.

Speaking about the event, Randall Lane, the editor of Forbes magazine, said: “As these innovators explore the intersection of Big Data, smart design, AI, robotics, virtual and augmented reality and other accelerating tech trends, participants in our summit will realize an evident truth: We have the tools and technologies to create a better world, if we can muster the comity and the will.”

The summit takes place in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem from 2-6 April, and will follow the theme “Innovation, Exploration, and Inspiration.”

The conference will feature panels, interviews, performances, product demos and keynote addresses, all focused around “breakthrough ideas that tackle the most intractable problems facing our society and the planet.”

Last December, it was revealed that Sean Rad would be stepping down as CEO of Tinder to run a new acquisition and investment vehicle called Swipe Ventures.

The new venture will look to “expand Tinder’s footprint through acquisitions, development of new businesses and investments in new and existing businesses” within the dating and social space.
