“Where the Startup World Gathers”

For one week in February, the startup world gathers in Jerusalem for the OurCrowd Global Investor Summit, one of the premier events in the tech industry, and the largest business conference in Israel.  The 2020 Summit will take place February 13 at Binyanei Hauma.

In 2019, over 18,000 people from 189 countries registered to attend what has become the fastest-growing tech conference in the world.  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.”

Why You Should Attend

The Summit provides unprecedented insight into the world of startup venture capital, with exclusive exposure to cutting-edge technologies, the entrepreneurs behind them, and the corporate leaders deploying them.  Speakers are never paid — passion and expertise are the only criteria. Attendees have become accustomed to being wowed by the content, inspired by the ideas, and surprised by the unexpected.

From its unique position within the global startup ecosystem and as Israel’s most active venture investor, OurCrowd provides a gathering place to set the themes and trends for the coming year and to get business done.  This year, there will be even more attendee lounges, dedicated meeting spaces, and facilitated networking.

Summit Day will be Thursday, February 13.  Invite-only events will take place on February 11 and 12, including the OurCrowd Leaders Forum, an all-business event for the elite of the ecosystem, and the OurCrowd Advisory Forums, which harness the extensive knowledge and experience held by OurCrowd’s top-tier investors and corporate partners.

Summit Week will be as packed as ever, with corporate meetups, VC forums, insider access to accelerators and labs, and touring opportunities providing a unique insider’s look at the innovation ecosystem.  Visitors will also get a deep dive into the history, culture and vibe of Israel, including the nightlife of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The legendary Summit partying will expand as well, with nightly opportunities for great food, drink and networking with the global crowd.

Summit Theme – Startups: Going Beyond

The theme of the 2020 OurCrowd Global Investor Summit is “Startups: Going Beyond,” reflecting the breathtaking potential of startup technologies to push the limits of what’s possible.  From 3D printed hearts to devices that pull water from thin air to machines controlled by your mind, startups are creating astonishing solutions to old problems, overturning industries, and changing people’s lives.

Onstage, in working sessions, and in a multitude of tech demos, Summit attendees will learn about the latest breakthroughs, hear from the people living with the technology, and discover where investment opportunity lies. 

It all starts with an entrepreneur whose view over the horizon leads to something new.  And it continues with the corporate leaders who encourage and the investors who empower, who know that disruption begins with rejecting the status quo.  The entire tech ecosystem will gather at the Summit to understand where we are and how we can participate in going beyond to build a better future.
