The tech scene in Tel Aviv is bustling with activity, and ever since our last visit in 2011 we’ve seen a surge of new startups and interesting investments happening. On top of that, new investors, incubators, and workspaces are opening up – it’s therefore no surprise that we’re excited about returning to Israel for the fourth year running.
Trusted partners in crime – Afeka College and lool ventures
We’ll be hosting Seedcamp Tel Aviv on Thursday 29th March in partnership with lool ventures, long time friends and partners in crime in Israel. It’s exciting to be partnering with a local partner who shares so many core values with us. With a great team being lead by Yaniv Golan and Avichay Nissentaum, and their strong base of mentors, we’re sure this event will be bigger and better than ever before. The partnership will go one step further than just organization of the event: we’ll jointly be investing in the winners, giving the startups both a local and international support network. lool ventures is in the perfect position to offer local teams the longer term support they require, with Seedcamp providing strong links to the US and mainland Europe. AFEKA College of Engineering has been kind enough to invite us back to host Seedcamp Tel Aviv at their beautiful premises – we’re based in their new lab building this year.
