Founders helping founders.

The Israeli Startup Founders Club


Established in 2007, the TechAviv Founders Club is a non-profit, invite-only global network of top Israeli startup founders and investors that are committed to helping each other and our next generation succeed.



To help fellow Israeli founders succeed by harnessing our collective energy, knowledge and networks.


3,000 Members


Paying it

Our members include the seasoned founders of Israel's most iconic technology companies, 14 unicorns, promising first-time founders and some of the world's top investors. We’re all here to help and learn from each other. 


Better Together

TechAviv Founders Club members meet at local events and connect online via our web and mobile app to share their experience and resources, request and suggest intros, ask for advice and feedback, etc. We're here to help each other become better founders and build better companies.

Membership and everything we do is free, but requires an invitation and recommendation from an existing member.


Collective Intelligence

We meet offline to deepen our relationships, share our experience and knowledge, showcase our products, and discuss our challenges. With 3,000 members worldwide, someone has made the mistakes you’re about to make, navigated the paths you’re on and knows the people you need to know. Nothing beats quality time together to harness our collective.


Fireside Chats

We sit down with our most inspiring members and industry luminares to glean inspiration, strategic insights and tactical company building advice.
