The OurCrowd Global Investor Summit has become the place where the startup world gathers to “get business done.”
This year more than ever, there are numerous opportunities – some old, some new – to achieve your goals, whether it’s sourcing innovation, connecting to the Israeli ecosystem, finding new prospects, or just establishing key relationships. So, whether you’re a budding entrepreneur, a CEO at a multinational corporation or an investor, this guide is for you, including some practical advice from long-time Summit attendees.
Summit is no longer a one-day affair, but instead spans an entire week, filled with events specially curated to facilitate meeting new people in the industry. Summit Week events include academic masterclasses designed by NYU and OurCrowd for corporate executives and Fintech Week Tel Aviv, a conference that brings together players from a host of global FinTech hotspots.
On Summit Day alone we have:
- The VC lunch – If you’re a venture capitalist this invite-only event is your chance to spend quality time in an intimate setting with others in your field, over some delicious food.
- OurCrowd Business Hub – Including meeting rooms, workshops, facilitated networking, investment opportunities and masterclasses too, this area is specifically designated to get business done without distraction from the rest of the Summit Day events.
- Hundreds of Pre-Scheduled meetings – In addition to the thousands of spontaneous meetings happening during Summit Week, we have a dedicated online networking platform to allow Summit attendees to pre-arrange business meetings to ensure everyone is getting the most from their time at Summit.
“It would take us years to be able to accomplish what we’ve done in a very short period of time, purely because of the strength and insight of OurCrowd.”
