Israel is known as the Startup Nation for its disproportionately high number of young companies and new inventions, from the cherry tomato to Waze. Israeli innovation and entrepreneurship are not only useful for the development of new technologies, but also serve as a channel to affect positive societal changes and foster coexistence between different communities.
PresenTense Israel is a startup accelerator that nurtures coexistence through innovation, investing in various underserved communities within Israeli society. A panel discussion with the CEO and three alumni of the incubator will discuss how their work has influenced their views of coexistence and how they help underserved communities within Israel.
The event will include introductory remarks, panelist discussion, a moderated audience Q, and time for networking.Refreshments will be served.
