Last week was a big one for Fintech and Israel. At the beginning of the week, the annual Tel Aviv Fintech Week event took place. Tel Aviv Fintech is a three-day affair that started with blockchain and ended with women in Fintech.
On Thursday, the OurCrowd Annual Investor Summit took place – an event that saw over 18,000 participants – the largest online capital formation event anywhere.
Crowdfund Insider was able to attend part of Tel Aviv Fintech 2019 before we shuttled off to the OurCrowd event.
Ram Shoham moderated the panel on “Partner or perish? Culture, Collaboration and Competition”, together with Hilla Ovil-Brenner, Maria Akkuratnova and Daniel Turgel.
(2019 OurCrowd Global Investor Summit) – Israel continues to be a red hot market for startups and entrepreneurship in general. The “Innovation Nation” is host to numerous tech startups – including those in financial services. In fact, Israeli startups raised $1 billion in the first two months of 2019 with $550 million raised in February.
