TechAviv is the largest global organization of Israeli hi-tech startup founders and investors. We meet monthly in Israel, New York, Silicon Valley and Boston to showcase, discuss and help fellow Israeli startups. Each month, in each of our four locations, founders demo their products followed by bi-directional Q&A with local peers. Casual networking happens before and after the demos. Our mission is to bring the Israeli hi-tech community closer together, creating a global support system for founders by harnessing our extensive collective experience and contacts.
Israel, a country smaller than New Jersey, is the second most prolific producer of hi-tech companies in the world. It accounts for more funding, M&A transactions and NASDAQ listed companies in the hi-tech sector than any other country besides the U.S. The TechAviv community and blog is a window into some of the relevant startups, entrepreneurs and happenings driving this bustling hi-tech powerhouse. Our membership is comprised predominately of Israeli startup founders and investors who share a common desire to help each other and Israeli hi-tech as a whole succeed worldwide. One of us? Join today.
