Israel has always been at the frontline of global technology innovations. With 74 Israeli companies listed on the NASDAQ, and the highest number of startups per capita, Israeli now sets its eyes on social-tech, aiming to use technological innovations to solve social issues.

In this session, we have invited Ms. Ron Snir, First Secretary of Economic and Trade Mission from the Embassy of Israel to share her observations on Israeli government’s role in promoting the development of the social-tech space.

Tech for Good Israel founder Nir Shimony will then highlight some successful social-tech examples, a bird eye’s view on the social-tech landscape in Israel as well as its latest trends. The evolving social-tech ecosystem is designed to answer the growing demand of impact investors and venture philanthropists for groundbreaking tech solutions that will enhance their impact. Nir and his team in Israel are running successfully a social tech accelerator and recently raised funds for Tech For Good Capital, which is an early stage social tech investment fund.

Last but not least, Kineret Karin and Yoav Elgrichi, co-founders of Tech for Good Singapore, will talk about their plans to build a vibrant social-tech community in Singapore and Asia and how companies and individuals can play a part in building the community.
