Over the years, our Chamber has pioneered many new economic development models to support and promote US-Israel business. These have included our award-winning business exchange matchmaker events, industry-specific business missions, regional approaches, seminars, and recognition events.
A couple of years ago, we developed a new “combination” concept —the I? Israel Innovation Impact—series that included educational, networking, and matchmaking components in an after-hours event by focusing on a specific industry topic and featuring 3 Israeli companies with unique offerings in that space and local industry experts. The programs targeted decision makers in major corporations, tech companies, and integrators. This fall, our Hi-Tech Committee developed a new twist on I? by using technology to allow the Israeli companies to present remotely via webinar in a breakfast setting. Our first such program was hosted by IBM in September, focusing in “Big Data”. Our next one will be hosted by AT&T on December 11th and will focus on “Mobility”. In addition to three very exciting Israeli companies in this hot topic, the event will feature one of the industry’s top thought leaders, Glenn Lurie, President of Emerging Devices & Partnerships for AT&T.
We hope you will give this new format a try. For details and to register, click here.
