UK startups offered Israeli contacts as competition prize
The UK’s most promising technology startups are being offered the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to Israel to meet with potential investors and customers in a new competition.
The first Bizcamp Tel Aviv competition is offering one UK winner the chance to join a delegation of ten entrepreneurs from ten different European countries in Israel in October.
Organised by the city of Tel Aviv, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The Next Web, Bizcamp’s ten day itinerary (14th-24th October) is formed around a schedule of business meetings and workshops with Israel’s most successful start-ups, entrepreneurs, tech investors and leading multinational tech firms.
Seminar topics covered during Bizcamp include strategy formation, financing models, intellectual property and pitching. Bizcampers will also win exclusive “access all areas” visits to R&D centres in Tel Aviv, such as the Google Incubator, Microsoft Accelerator and the eBay Social Centre, where they will get to see up close what these global firms are developing next.
Flights, accommodation and free entry to the three-day DLD Festival in Tel Aviv are included in the prize.
For a chance to win a place at Bizcamp Tel Aviv, all young UK tech entrepreneurs have to do is fill in the online entry form at www.bizcamptelaviv.com. Entries are open until 22nd August and zcamp’s panel of entrepreneurs, investors, journalists and statesmen will then select five UK finalists to take part in a live Grand Final event on 3rd September in London. Entrants must available to travel between 14th and 24th October 2012.
