Startup Europe Comes to Israel

Startup Europe comes to Israel (SEC2IL) is modeled around the successful format of SEC2SV (Startup Europe comes to Silicon Valley).
SEC2IL aims at bringing together corporates, investors, entrepreneurs and policy-makers from the EU entrepreneurial ecosystem and Israel each year.
Attendees will be involved in engaging meetings and workshops, forging meaningful long-term relationships.
The mission will include the participation in the SEP Scaleup Summit organized at the Tel Aviv stock exchange with a focus on Cybersecurity, Mobility and Construction/Smart cities.
The 2019 edition is scheduled for June 2-4.
