Israel Calling: Insights from Startups using the Austrade SOSA Landing Pad
Thu. 27 October 2016, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm AEDT
The National Innovation and Science Agenda saw the launch of 5 Landing Pads, one each in Tel Aviv, Singapore, Berlin, San Francisco and Shanghai, to help Australian Startups with space and connections as they expanded into overseas markets.
Just a few weeks ago, 8 Sydney-based FinTech and Tech Startups were selected to visit the Israel Landing Pad together with an opportunity to attend Israel’s premier innovation conference, DLD Israel.
Dubbed Israel Calling, the initiative run by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet saw them undertake an intensive week-long program of meetings and business development opportunities run by the Austrade SOSA Landing Pad team.
FinTech Australia, Asia Recon, Tank Stream Labs and Austrade invite you to come hear from these recently returned startups as they share their perspectives and insights from visiting the world’s Innovation Nation. The panel session will be moderated by Johanna Pitman, Director of Financial Services at Committee for Sydney and author of this AFR op-ed on Israel: http://www.sydney.org.au/op-ed-what-sydney-needs-that-israel-has-in-spades/
PLUS, we'll be joined by Omri Wislizki, the SOSA Landing Pad Manager in Tel Aviv, to talk about the meetings and connections that he can help create for you.
It’s also a great opportunity to learn how to get access to the SOSA and other Austrade Landing pads to help your startup launch into new markets abroad.
