    Hey !
    I just launched my next Kickstarter Bolt Riley:
    Http://bolt-riley.com/ks

    It’s the game i’ve been working on since 2011.It’s a 2D point and click adventure game that tells the story of the greatest Reggae musician that ever lived and I’ve worked on it with legendary game designers Corey and Lori Cole who made Quest for Glory.

    Any help spreading the word would be AWESOME. We created a special page to make it easy. (using the Soma hack i learned about in this meetup from Ben Lang!)

    Thanks! Oded

    I got today a e-mail which may present a new opportunity for funding. I am looking for a partner to join a Israeli-Greece joint project funded in Israel by the CSO (need matching funds as CSO funding is between 30-50% of budget). The Israeli company may get the benefit of collaboration on R&D, having a joint product distributed by Citrix and getting funded by the CSO. The Greece partners is a Commercial/Research company (a subsidiary of Citrix) active in the research and development of complex traffic, web, and wide optimization algorithms and software for the improvement of the end-user experience and the alleviation of cellular networks from the adverse effects of high volume traffic. The product may target the problems originating from the explosive growth of mobile data traffic due to the ever increasing usage of advanced smart devices as a means to access the internet. Call Alex Shani[masked] or mail to [masked].

    I am looking for Start-Ups to join the new program by the Chief Scientific Office “מסלול סיוע לקידום חברות מתחילות”. This new program provides funding also to Product Marketing activities. The program will fund 50% of product development cost (including 20% O/H) for 2 years up to 10 Millions IS. It is a one phase application and approval covering the 2 years. After getting approved the entrepreneurs will have 6 months to get the investment for the additional required funds required for the project. The New Program assumes that a positive evaluation and an approval by the CSO will support Start-Ups in getting additional investment. Call me[masked]

      I must say that I'm not impressed by their approach. Heard of iAngels which should be launching soon, thinking about approaching them, mainly due to their non-snob approach.

    Gents – quick question: is it legal for an Israeli company to raise funding from the public?
    To the best of my knowledge – there are very few exceptions (one example: up to 35 non-professional investors) but in general – NO. Commercial company simply cannot ask for investment directly from the public.
    Best,

    • Sean L.

      Note the difference between gift, pre-order, debt and equity crowdfunding. The last two are still to be sorted out legally. This may be of interest: http://blog.ourcrowd....­

      I was referring to “the real thing”: equity and/or debt funding for commercial usage.
