The Philadelphia-Israel Chamber of Commerce (PICC) facilitates business and joint R&D connections through networking opportunities and introductions. In October 2014, the PICC co-hosted the Israel Technology Conference in Philadelphia featuring Israeli advanced technologies in healthcare IT and communications and media.
Eleven Israeli companies showcased their technologies and were introduced to leading business and academic institutes in the Greater Philadelphia region. The program included symposiums with regional stakeholders and speakers from Israel and one-on-one meetings.
As a result, three companies expressed interest in opening their US office in the region, and follow up meetings and discussions were scheduled for the delegates.
The PICC assist with introductions in the fields of life .sciences, healthcare IT, IT including cyber and homeland security, and cleantech and energy.
In addition, the PICC hosts events to promote investment opportunities in Israeli companies.
