Start JLM brings together innovative, early-stage startup founders from around the globe to explore and experience Jerusalem’s vibrant startup ecosystem. Applications for Swiss companies are now open.

The program is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to connect and benefit from interaction with prominent local tech leaders in a 7-day immersive program, featuring interactive fireside chats and panels, specially designed how-to workshops, site visits at leading companies and exclusive networking meet-ups with the city’s start-up community. The program is running for the second year now after a phenomenal success last year.

2018’s focus will be on Swiss startups in the areas of life sciences, digital health, medtech, healthcare IT, and assistive technology. Jerusalem is one of the fastest growing tech hubs. It is the leading city in Israel for life science innovation with over 150 companies in this field including Orcam, TEVA Pharmaceutical Industries, Medinol, Oridion (acquired by Covidien), Omrix (acquired by Johnson & Johnson), Sigma Aldrich and many others. Jerusalem’s multicultural energy has created a unique environment for creators and innovators to connect and bring their world-changing ideas together.
