TechAviv Peer Awards Finalists:
The finals competition is a closed, members-only event of the TechAviv Founders Club in Israel which includes 600 Israeli hi-tech startup founders and investors. In typical TechAviv fashion, we’re crowdsourcing the competition. Rather than have a panel of so-called experts pick the winner, Israel’s founders and investors will select the winner via live SMS vote after the startups get 10 minutes each on stage to impress their peers. See who’s coming here.
Congrats to all of the great startups that were nominated and best of luck to our finalists!
It’s important to note, as many have commented, that many fine Israeli startups outside our mainly Internet, web and mobile software and services membership were not nominated. We may include different category awards next year as a result.
