Robert Curtis is focused on market consulting and communication strategy. In these fields, he has worked as a consultant with various institutions in the United Kingdom, the United States, the Netherlands, and Israel.
As a member of the UAE-Israel Business Council (UIBC), Curtis is currently an economic figurehead in the Israeli regime’s push to counter its growing international isolation by normalizing relations with despotic Arab regimes.
The UIBC is the central and largest economic organization formed in the field of economical connections between the UAE and Israel. The council began operations immediately after the “Abraham Accords” between the two countries in August 2020.
Wide range of contacts
Curtis was born in London. He has worked in the field of real estate for ten years, after which he started working in entrepreneurship. He has received his bachelor’s degree in history from the Queen Mary University of London.
In 2011, he was offered a job by an Israeli startup in new technologies to join the startup as part of its sales department. He then immigrated to Israel with his family and worked there for seven years.
The name of this startup is Graduway. The startup seeks to create a virtual community and an “empowerment” platform to attract students. The startup works with more than 2,000 college schools. It also has active offices in London, Boston, Seattle, and Tel Aviv.
In 2018, he left the startup and co-founded Pipe with Simon Gerstler. The company provides business consulting and marketing.
Given that members of the UIBC are highly embedded with Israeli intelligence, its possible that Curtis’ vast network of startup information, such as the information of Graduway’s more than 2000 colleges, may be used for intelligence and influence operations.
