The trade mission to Israel at a glance

From February 13 to 17, 2023, join a technology and startup trade mission to Israel. The mission will begin in Tel Aviv with several events to better understand the Israeli market and will end in Jerusalem at the OurCrowd Global Investor Summit, a large international event that will bring together stakeholders from the innovation and startup industry.

Israel is a world leader in the science, technology and innovation sectors. This country is home to the sixth biggest startup ecosystem in the world, earning it the name of “Startup Nation.” The governments of Quebec and Israel signed an agreement in 2017 for collaboration on technological innovation.
