American actor Ashton Kutcher and his investment partner, Guy Oseary, a producer in the US music industry and Madonna’s personal manager, stole the spotlight at the GarageGeeks gathering in Tel Aviv last night. Yossi Vardi, unofficial ambassador of the Israeli high-tech scene, hosted Kutcher and Oseary as part of a “Meet the Industry Leaders” event.

Kutcher, on his fifth visit to Israel, came to find “interesting entrepreneurs.”

GarageGeeks — a space for innovative and creative people to introduce, network, expose, create, brainstorm, innovate and build — hosts monthly evening events. Thanks to Kutcher and Oseary last night’s event was jam-packed drawing more than 1,000 people.

Vardi asked Kutcher – one of Hollywood’s most successful high-tech investors – what he looks for when choosing a startup in which to invest.

Kutcher said that just as in a movie he looks for a good story and a creative director, the same is true for a startup – that he wants entrepreneurs with originality and a good social connection with people.

Kutcher will also visit the Kabbalah Center during the Shavuot holiday.
