VIP Investors Summit –Why Now Is the Best Time to Invest in Israeli Startups

At the VIP Investor Summit, Besadno and BuiltUp Ventures Demonstrated Why Now Is the Best Time to Invest in Israeli Startups

The ongoing war and other economic headwinds have posed a challenge to Israeli companies. However, VC firms Besadno and BuiltUp Ventures successfully demonstrated through compelling presentations and discussions why now is an ideal time to invest in Israeli startups.

The event took place on February 27th, 2024 at the Bison & Bourbon in Brooklyn, New York and featured the Besadno and BuiltUp Ventures team and startup companies engaging in talks, presentations and panel discussions before an audience of present and prospective investors.

The evening began with the discussion “Investing in Israel–Why Now?” Israeli startups are world renown for their advanced innovation and disruptive solutions, but they are also flexible and resilient.

Although the current war with Hamas creates an environment of uncertainty, the technologies of many of the portfolio companies have become not only useful but indispensable as the result of the war.

In addition, Israeli technology aligns investors with innovation that allows them to benefit from the transformation of industries and markets.

The next phase of the event focused on presentations of five portfolio companies AirWayz, BuzzzTech, Microbiome, Wonder Robotics and TempraMed.

AirWayz, is a proprietary Unmanned Traffic Management System (UTM) that uses artificial intelligence and cloud-based software for multi-fleet coordination and flight route optimization.

BuzzzTech is an automated system for keeping public restrooms clean

throughout the day using innovative sensors, intelligent algorithms, and AI-based technologies.

Microbiome’s formula that eliminates harmful bacteria and pathogens by stimulating the reproduction of healthy bacteria has been approved by Israel’s Ministry of Agriculture.

Wonder Robotics’ drone management technology is currently being used by the IDF for the safe landing of its drones. Its Wonderland has an attachable stereo vision pod for ground clearance and a vertical data analytics system for precise and safe autonomous landings.

TempraMed is an FDA-registered, patent-protected, medical device that keeps medications at optimal temperatures in hot and cold environments.

Following the company presentations, there was a networking session during which participants could meet and have in-depth conversations. The enthusiasm was evident throughout the presentations and during the networking sessions, and it was clear that participants were inspired, well-informed and had made lasting connections.

To conclude the evening, Besadno director Eliezer Gross gave an uplifting dvar Torah and all participants engaged in a siyum haShas as a testament to Hashem’s guidance in the success of our investments.

The Besadno VIP Investor summit was not just a one-time event, but a catalyst for future opportunities. The presentations, discussions and connections set the stage for a continued exploration and collaboration in the ever-changing landscape of technology.

Besadno and BuiltUp Ventures extend their appreciation to everyone who contributed to the success of this valuable event.
