TechAviv is a global network of 1,000+ Israeli hi-tech entrepreneurs and investors that gather monthly in Israel, New York and Silicon Valley to showcase, discuss and help fellow Israeli startups. This is the central site and blog covering the Israeli hi-tech startup scene with an emphasis on member startups.
For those of us in the U.S., we can meet fellow Israeli hi-tech entrepreneurs, professionals and investors living and working in New York. There's a monthly gathering to showcase and discuss local Israeli startups and businesses.
Each month three companies get 5 minutes to demo their latest products, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A with the group. Casual networking occurs before and after the demos.
According to the site, the aim is to bring the local Israeli hi-tech community closer together to help each other achieve our goals and further the community as a whole in NYC and Israel.
I look forward to this idea growing across the U.S., including here in the State of Texas where I live.
