Startups based throughout Israel’s high-tech and innovation ecosystems can check out and join our open application from NOW until July 10th, 2019 to join an online-based opportunity to take the next step towards scaling your company in a foreign market. 

About The Program

On June 17th, 2019, we’ll be hosting a FREE and open webinar workshop with our CEO, Lucas Rondez. We’ll be sending more info on how to join the workshop in the coming weeks so make sure to keep an eye out for our e-mail or check back here!

After the application closes, we’ll work one-on-one with each project over the following two weeks to prepare for a Digital Roadshow where startups and entrepreneurs present their projects to nihub investment team & partners

Join Our “Innovation Week” in China

Immediately following the digital roadshow, a panel of comprised of nihub, investors, and senior mentors will select three winning startups to join our free “Innovation Week” in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province where nihub Innovation Center is headquartered. The three startups will have their flights, hotels, and select meals completely covered while they are immersed into the local ecosystem.

Throughout the seven-day trip, all attending entrepreneurs and startups will meet with local corporates, startups, mentors, investors, and potential partners / clientele to build a network with the local entrepreneurship community. The innovation week will be finished off with another “open pitch day” where the visiting startups can pitch directly to the entire community alongside nihub and partner investors. Finally, there’ll be a community night right after the pitch day to make sure everyone has a chance to connect and collaborate!
