      The Delegation Process Flow
      Each delegation is unique in its presentation and needs. Each visit is planned and designed meticulously, with your specific requirements in mind. Start-Up Nation Central manages both the production and the content of the trip. We utilize our comprehensive understanding of the Israeli innovation ecosystem to create a uniquely relevant experience, that introduces you to the Israeli thought-leaders, start-ups and investors best suited to what you seek, facilitating effective knowledge-sharing and business development. Furthermore, Start-Up Nation Central is also well-versed in the spectrum of business models used within the Israeli innovation ecosystem by various multinationals. Demonstrating this knowledge to those who would like to create an Israeli presence is another service that we offer, helping them gain a full understanding of these models, as well as consulting with them, providing advice, and assisting them in the choice of the most appropriate model for them.

      Start-Up Nation Central Visits are tech tours for delegations of executives, from MNCs, investment houses, academic institutions and governments across the globe that last anything from two to five days, the events of which are tailor-made to suit the participants. For several weeks and even months in advance, Start-Up Nation Central works closely with the company for whom the delegation is planned, to fully understand their pain points, challenges, requirements, and needs. We then create a personalized schedule, during which the delegation participants are introduced to start-ups, industry leaders and investors who can address the issues relevant to them, and provide suitable innovative solutions.
