Israel’s best startups meet the world’s best investors
“Which is the most promising Israeli startup right now?”
That’s the question we ask 500 TechAviv Founders Club members - Israel’s top founder CEOs, CTOs and investors - three times a year. We then tally the votes and invite the top 5 early and growth-stage nominees to present in front of fellow founders, local VCs and over 50 hand-selected top-tier VCs globally via video. Presentations are 5 minutes followed by 5 minutes of Q&A with a panel of our top founder CEOs and investors. We call this event series TechAviv Top Startup.
Participating global VCs watching via video include senior partners from Andreessen Horowitz, Benchmark, Bessemer, Sequoia, Greylock, Accel, Khosla Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Lightspeed, Battery, Index Ventures, Founders Fund, CRV, GGV, Breyer Capital, First Round Capital and SV Angel.
