    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]

    This was very informative indeed - yet I think it should have been much more clear that the session will be delivered by a company which has interest in the field.
