“Where the Startup World Gathers” 

For one week in Israel, the startup world gathers for the OurCrowd Gloabl Investor Summit, one of the premier events in the tech industry, and the largest investor event in the Middle East.  The 2024 Summit will take place in September at the Internation Convention Center (Binyanei Hauma) in Jerusalem, with events across Israel during Summit week.

Entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, corporate executives, investors and others came to the Innovation Nation to meet, learn, do business – and discover the most historic city in the most exciting country in the world. As Forbes reported, Summit Week in Israel was “the place to be.”
