Swedish MP Visits JVP; impressed by innovation
Swedish Parliament Member Mats Odell visits JVP Media Quarter to learn on encouraging the high tech industry
JVP’s relationship with Sweden continues to strengthen. Not long after JVP's founder and Chair, Erel Margalit, gave a keynote speech at Sweden's STING conference on encouraging entrepreneurship, Swedish MP and former Minister of Financial Markets, Mats Odell visited the JVP Media Quarter.
Odell, Chairman of the Swedish Parliament Committee on Industry and Trade, is on a short visit to Israel to learn about ways to encourage early stage innovation Sweden. As part of his tour at the Media Quarter, Odell and his delegation met with our VP Business Development and Investors Relations, Ms. Fiona Darmon, who introduced them to JVP’s vision for entrepreneurship, the compound, several dynamic entrepreneurs as well as showed them around JVP's in-house incubator, the JVP Media Lab’s.
Odell was impressed by JVP's unique incubator model – namely the OCS approved incubator being owned by an active venture capital fund. This enables the successful companies in the JVP Media Labs to gain further investment from the main fund.
