Join us for our first Israel Demo Day!

April 24th: Investor Demo Day – Invite only for Investors

April 25th: Main Demo Day – Open to all. RSVP

This April Startupbootcamp Israel hosts its first demo day. The three month startup accelerator started in January and is based in Haifa university.

Startupbootcamp is Europe’s leading startup accelerator, with programs running in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Berlin, Dublin, London and now – Haifa, Israel – in partnership with Sushi Venture Partners.

Participants receive seed funding, join a co-working space with other startups in the program and receive a dedicated mentorship plan to accelerate their development plans. A combined package of €15k, office space, mentoring, connections & support services were offered to each startup in Israel to fast track product development. At the end of the program, participants pitch to prominent angel investors and venture capitalists for funding. More than half of Startupbootcamp teams to date have secured funding after completing the accelerator program.

Over the last three months teams have progressed their respective apps, attended a range of workshops and forged relationships with mentors and tech media industry contacts. They will present their product demos at the Demo Day event on the 25th of April at IBM Labs in Haifa.
