Breaking the Myths: Investment Opportunities in Israeli Innovation

September 29, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Co-hosted by:  Philadelphia-Israel Chamber of Commerce PICC logo CFA_Philadelphia_RGB PepperLogo

Israel is a startup nation. The same military it relies on for national security is also driving growth in its technology sector. The Israeli government spends more than twice as much of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on Research and Development (R&D) compared to the nations of the European Union, and that often trickles down to the private sector. For this reason, Israel is a hotbed for technology startups and talent.

Join the Philadelphia-Israel Chamber of Commerce and the CFA Society of Philadelphia at this event to learn about investment opportunities in Israeli publicly traded companies.

Guest speaker:

Dani Dayan, Israeli Ambassador and Consul General in New York

Ambassador Dayan has a long time reputation as an Israeli public figure, lecturer and entrepreneur. His diverse career includes: serving as Chairman of the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria from July 2007 until January 2013, and most recently as the Council’s Chief Foreign Envoy. Amb. Dayan has been for many years a regular commentator in the international press, both broadcast and print and was frequently called upon to participate in public debates and panels at major conferences and universities.
