Fundraising Mechanics and Current Venture Capital Trends in Israel
We are delighted to invite you to our session “Fundraising Mechanics and Current Venture Capital Trends in Israel” where we will be exploring the differences between Israel and Germany regarding deal terms in Venture Capital transactions and current market trends in the Israeli start-up eco-system. It is widely known that business is done differently in the middle east, but how do the legal aspects of a deal actually differ from German transactions? What trends are to watch in the so-called Silicon Wadi? And what is the best way to connect German investors with Israeli start-ups? We are excited to welcome:
