Description

Why Tel Aviv?

Driven by government policy, Israel’s innovation ecosystem is shaped by a sophisticated network of major global investors, startups and relevant service providers such as expert IP lawyers.

The Compass Global Startup Ecosystem, which ranks startup ecosystems around the world, ranked Tel Aviv in 2015 as the best startup centre outside of the United States. The Tel Aviv Municipality describes the city as “entrepreneurially-focused and no-nonsense … Tel Aviv packs a perfect ‘innovation ecosystem’ storm: thousands of high-tech companies and startups; leading multinationals; accelerators and co-working spaces; and dozens of networking events."

Presented by Austrade Landing Pad Tel Aviv and Startup Victoria, this evening is about deep diving into the Israel Startup Ecosystem and the benefits of scaling your businesses into that region. Come and emerge yourself in one of the most advanced tech ecosystem in the world!
