Parabéns! We reached a new milestone in São Paulo, Brazil, this month at our first ever OurCrowd Sync Conference, our biggest event outside of the OurCrowd Global Investor Summit. The event was maxed out and saw major players from the Latam tech ecosystem interacting face-to-face with industry leaders and decision-makers from the region and beyond. We also announced the launch of OurCrowd’s office in São Paulo, which we believe to be a key region for innovation. Look out for additional Sync conferences coming to your region soon!
Did you know? In Israel, foodtech investment nearly tripled over five years. What’s fueling the foreign appetite for Israeli foodtech? See it here, and check out some of the alternative protein tech shown at the FoodTechIL event. As I’ve said, I think foodtech is going to become one of the most active areas of innovation – it has to be, because the world’s food supply, and everyone’s health, depends on it.
