Dvir Maltzman
Workshop Academic Director
Dvir Maltzman joined the Camp BizSmart family in the summer of 2016. Dvir has spent many years learning social psychology, interpersonal communication, and conflict resolution both in and out of formal academic programs. In addition, Dvir has been involved in leadership and social entrepreneurship organizations since the age of 14. His love of learning and passion for people found a natural home at Camp BizSmart.

It is an iterative process of ideating, developing, testing, and bringing products and services to market. Professionally, Dvir focuses on environmentalism and sustainable design.
