Rachel Kastner is an operator, creative storyteller, and New York City transplant. After spending some years focused on Film/TV production creating films, podcasts and theater in both LA and NY, Rachel moved to Tel Aviv and decided to pursue a new creative challenge: A deep dive into the tech start-up world, motivated by the challenge of building something from nothing.
After moving to Israel in 2019, Rachel began consulting for early-stage entrepreneurs on storytelling for investors. She eventually joined one of her clients and found herself in OneStep’s office, where she is currently operating as Chief of Staff. She’s found that building a company and producing a movie have a lot in common.
She continues to pursue and produce creative projects on the side. Rachel is especially passionate about Holocaust education. She produces content – both documentaries and digital media – on the topic. She is a speaker on Millennial and Gen-Z responsibility in Holocaust Memory – and has presented to US public schools, private schools, companies, conferences and and organizations.
Oh – and she’s currently on a mission to read a book from every country in the world. Send her recommendations!
