Become a Startup Scout
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

Join the exciting world of VC Startup Scouts, a unique opportunity to network with innovative thinkers and contribute to the growth of groundbreaking technologies. Leverage your Technion experience to identify potential startup stars.


The Technion - Israel Institute of Technology is a pioneer in the startup and Venture Capital (VC) ecosystem in Israel. The university is a breeding ground for many tech startups and entrepreneurs, fostering innovation and entrepreneurship through its programs and initiatives.

For instance, the Technion has launched several incubation and accelerator programs to nurture and support home-grown entrepreneurs. The Technion DRIVE Accelerator is a platform that supports early-stage startups developing deep tech solutions, offering participants mentorship, business development guidance, office space, and funding.

In addition to fostering startups, Technion has produced individuals who have made significant contributions to the VC ecosystem. One such example is Shlomo Kramer, a Technion graduate, who is credited as the founder of Cybereason and other significant tech companies. His ventures have attracted significant venture funding, helping to establish Israel as a global player in the technology sector.

A key success story coming from Technion involves the company ReWalk Robotics, which was founded by Technion alumni Dr. Amit Goffer. ReWalk is a successful venture-backed firm that designs, develops, and commercializes exoskeletons allowing individuals with spinal cord injury to stand and walk.

Technion alumni also feature prominently in successes such as Mobileye, a company specialized in development of vision-based advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving technologies. Co-founded by Technion professor Amnon Shashua, Mobileye was bought by Intel in 2017 for approximately $15.3 Billion.

The startup culture fostered at Technion, its various initiatives promoting entrepreneurship, combined with the achievements of its alumni, contribute significantly to the VC landscape of Israel, earning it the nickname 'Silicon Wadi', a hub of tech startup activity in the Middle East.
