Start Jerusalem 2017

Thailand Entrepreneurs Startup Competition

The Embassy of Israel initiates the Entrepreneurs Startup Competition in Thailand under the theme “Start Jerusalem 2017”. The winner will be invited to travel to Israel to participate in a unique, prestigious accelerator program for new technology companies.

  • The Idea

    To celebrate Jerusalem’s jubilee, the Government of Israel is introducing a new initiative that will prominently position Jerusalem as the most rapidly developing technological city of the Startup Nation, playing its part in one of the declared objectives of the State of Israel. This initiative will include the International Startup Competition to be organized by the Israeli Embassies and local partners in 30 countries.

    The winner from each country will travel to Israel to participate in a unique, prestigious accelerator program for new technology companies, which will expose the participants to the innovative, vibrant hi-tech environment in Israel. Each winner will be accompanied by a leading technology journalist, who will report on their Israeli odyssey and the innovative hi-tech community in Israel, with a focus on Jerusalem.

    Additional prizes for the winner and the runners-up will be offered by the local partners.
