Techstars Tel Aviv will start its second accelerator program in 2021


Techstars Tel Aviv, the Israeli branch of an international mentoring and investment network, announced this week that they have selected 12 more startups to receive personalized advice and financial contributions to help their businesses grow rapidly. This is the second such accelerator program from Techstars in 2021.

The 13-week program began on October 18 and runs through January 13, 2022. The selected companies will each receive $ 120,000 in investment, are matched with high-profile mentors in their fields and have easy access to the global network of Techstars.

Hilla Ovil-Brenner, the director of the Tel Aviv program, has founded three companies; including WhiteSmoke, an English grammar checker and proofreader, and a supportive community for high-tech women-led executives.

“It is the first time that we are opening two programs internationally for the Global Accelerator in Tel Aviv in the same year. I see it as an honest vote of confidence in the local program, in the Israeli ecosystem and in Israeli startups in general. It is a great opportunity for these 12 companies who are given the incredible and unique opportunity to meet and learn from leading experts, “said Ovil-Brenner.
