The country of Israel and the OurCrowd team look forward to welcoming you at the OurCrowd Global Investor Summit on February 13 for an inspiring and exciting experience.
OurCrowd, in full cooperation and daily consultation with the Israeli government, its foreign embassies, and the Airport Authorities, monitors and assesses health and security issues that might affect the Summit.
The coronavirus has had minimal impact on the Summit thus far, and the full schedule of activities will proceed as planned in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and around the country.
As always, the OurCrowd Summit team continues to implement and expand its plans to protect the health of our attendees. These measures include adhering to advice from the Israel Ministry of Health, the World Health Organization, other health authorities, and our own MedTech Advisory Board, respecting travel restrictions where they exist, and maintaining access to medical experts.

Measures in place include:
- Thorough cleaning and disinfection program across all high-volume touchpoints, e.g., catering areas, washrooms, etc., along with the use of appropriate cleaning/sanitizing materials and products
- Availability of sanitizing and disinfection materials for public use
- Special instructions to all staff on standard personal preventative measures, e.g., personal hygiene, frequency of use of sanitizing/disinfection products, etc.
- Advice to exhibitors on implementing effective cleaning and disinfection of exhibition spaces along with guidance on personal hygiene measures and common preventative behavior
