A FRESH VIEW OF THE ISRAELI ENTREPRENEURSHIP ECOSYSTEM
The Israeli tech ecosystem is composed of many players - startups, investors, hubs, multinational corporations, academia, the tech community, and others. Each plays a role in making Israel a strong player in the global entrepreneurship arena.
The aim of The Ecosystem project is to showcase some of the inspiring personas who make this ecosystem strive, expose their stories and insights, and add meaningful value to a range of readers.
What's in the book?
Interviews, information, photos, and insights from a diverse set of industry insiders.
The project will showcase startups, investors, multinational corporations, academia, communities, entrepreneurship programs, hubs, articles, and more.
How can you showcase so many players?
We can't: it is impossible to include every one of the thousands of entities that make up this mosaic of innovation and Israeli high-tech. Thus, in each chapter, we will present interviews and articles of just a few.
How do you decide who gets selected?
A filtering and voting process will be used to determine what content will go in the book.
As we wish to make sure that the content that will enter the book will be unbiased and include diverse opinions, we have created a Judging Committee, composed of over 20 carefully selected women and men who represent different aspects of the Israeli high-tech ecosystem and are well familiar with it. Their accumulated votes will determine who's in the book.
We will publish their names soon.
HOW TO GET IN THE BOOK?
Between October 3-16, a digital form will be available for you to fill.
You can nominate yourself and whoever you choose to.
The form will be available here on social media.
The honorable judging committee will vote for the content, based on your form submission.
They would vote individually and independently, in order to make sure there would be no biases.
In case you get selected (crossing our fingers!), we will contact you for more information and start the production phase.
The finished products - a printed book and a website - should be available on January 2022.
