TechAviv is the global Israeli startup founders club, with over 3,000 members worldwide, by invitation only. We meet quarterly in Israel, New York, Silicon Valley and Boston to showcase, discuss and help fellow Israeli startups. At each gathering startups demo their products in front of hundreds of fellow founders to get critical feedback and advice. The energy is akin to an informal, spirited board meeting with 200 peers. We also hold group discussions led by invited panelists and speakers. Our goal is to learn from, inspire and help each other succeed by harnessing our collective experience. Together we’re creating a global support system for Israeli startup founders.
We’re primarily Internet and Mobile startup founders but our membership includes investors and Israeli executives from leading tech companies in the US including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and eBay. Membership is free once approved thanks to the generous support of our sponsors.
Israel, a country smaller than New Jersey, has the highest concentration of startups in the world and more NASDAQ listed companies than all of Europe, China and India combined. The TechAviv community and blog is a window into some of the relevant startups, entrepreneurs and happenings driving this bustling hi-tech powerhouse.
TechAviv was founded in the summer of 2007 by Israeli Internet entrepreneur Yaron Samid. Disclosures: Yaron is the founder of BillGuard, Pando Networks and DeskSite, a board member at CloudLock and Pond5 and an advisor to multiple startups.
