Virtual Field Trip to Corporate Venturing Ecosystem Israel
Israel is recognized as the “start-up nation” and is moving into “the scale up nation”. We want to go together with you on a virtual fieldtrip to Israel and introduce you to the Israeli ecosystem, with some key players. We will organizethis event together with Annegien Blokpoel (organizer of the CVN Fieldtrip to Israel)
Israel is recognized as the “start-up nation” and is moving into “the scale up nation”. Today there are more than 500 international Corporate R&D/innovation centres in Israel. Each year the country produces around 1.000 top-notch high-tech start-ups and in 2019 a record of 8,3 billion USD was invested in start-ups and companies in the scale up phase. Key to success have been amongst others the successful implementation of support programs and creating an innovation ecosystem attracting global investors and corporate venture and their networks to Israel.
The opening speech will be given by Naor Gilon, Israeli Ambassador to the Netherlands. Keynote presentations are from Masschallenge (Jerusalem), The Dock (Haifa), and a leading Venture Capital firm, followed by a panel discussion.
During the last half hour of the event, you will have to opportunity to have one-to-one discussions with the presenters or have a virtual network drink with your peers, using the same immersive virtual space we used during our other Corporate Venturing & Entrepreneurship and CVN events.
Hopefully we will be able to visit Israel at a later stage in 2021 and this virtual field trip can be considered as a step forwards to know and explore cooperation with the Israeli VC / startup / accelerator ecosystem and to strengthen the relationships between ecosystems in the Netherlands and Israel.Back to news
