Twelve Israeli tech companies are touring Philadelphia this week to find local customers and partners.
The Nutter administration said it’s a direct result of Mayor Nutter’s trade mission to Israel nearly one year ago. It’s Chemi Peres, head of Israeli venture capital fund Pitango Venture Capital, making good on his promise to bring Israeli companies to scope out potential business partners, according to the release.
The companies, ranging from firms focused on cybersecurity, medical devices and content production, are attending the Philadelphia Israeli Technology Conference, which included an evening reception at Comcast last night.
Tuesday, the health IT companies will visit Jefferson University Hospital, while the communications-focused companies will head back to Comcast, according to an agenda provided to us by the Commerce Department.
Law firm Greenberg Traurig is also hosting an investor roundtable today. Some companies will also attend IMPACT, PACT’s two-day venture capital conference that starts Tuesday.
