OurCrowd is hosting the competition together with Bank Hapoalim, the Jerusalem Development Authority and Keshet Broadcasting, and this year’s startup competition is geared towards entrepreneurs with ideas from various fields and sectors, such as hardware, software, cyber, advertising, medicine, energy, agriculture, and more.

Does your startup fit the bill? The competition is only open to Israeli startups who have been unable to raise serious funds in the past (under one million dollars), without a set annual income, or with an income of less than $1.5 million in the last year.

Live at the Summit, finalists will pitch and compete for the chance at a $500,000 investment to be considered by OurCrowdFirst, plus the title “crowd favorite” and an award of NIS 200,000 by Bank Hapoalim and the Jerusalem Development Authority.
