Visit of the EU Commissioner for Innovation
The partnership between the Israeli government and the Israeli start-up world once again was showcased today when Chief Scientist, Avi Hasson, and the OCS Technological Incubators Program Manager, Anya Eldan, together with Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, brought EU’s Commissioner for Innovation, Science, and Research, Mr. Carlos Moedas and his team of senior officials to the JVP Media Quarter.
The roundtable included our partners, among them Gadi Tirosh, Haim Kopans, Fiona Darmon, and Uri Adoni, as well as representatives of JVP portfolio companies - Mark Gazit, CEO Thetaray, Yuval Dimnik, CEO NooBaa, Assaf Monsa, General Manager Leadspace - discussing how to take seed companies and make them into global and multinational companies.
One of the most impressive facts is that for every $1 that the OCS invests, there are $11 invested by the private sector. This is how our companies are succeeding, and we are extremely grateful and looking forward to continuing this successful partnership.
