1 Hour Session with Panel, Q&A and Start up Demo,:

Following the city's centennial celebrations in 2009, the Municipality established the Tel Aviv Global Administration, a municipal initiative aimed at positioning Tel Aviv as a global city and specifically as a leading international business center specializing in innovation.  A major cornerstone of the Administration's mission is its Startup City Vision, a long-term strategic plan aimed at leveraging its culture of innovation and entrepreneurship (its USP) by cultivating the city's startup ecosystem and ensuring its long-term viability.  

Although Tel Aviv's technology startup ecosystem developed partly as a result of natural forces, the city recognized that maintaining this ecosystem was critical to the city's global competitiveness as a leading business and cultural center, and that doing so would require a sustained, long-term strategic vision and policies to ensure its continued health and growth.

Memeni Demo: Memeni is a digital platform for the development of online communities and innovation. The company's clients include cities and enterprises that use the technology to support and  engage their external ecosystems.
