The Future of Smart Homes
The Junction and Hybrid are happy to invite you to The Smart Home, where we talk about the future of homes. "Smart Home" is the term commonly used to define a residence that has appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment audio & video systems, security, and camera systems that are capable of communicating with one another and can be controlled remotely by a time schedule, from any room in the home, as well as remotely from any location in the world by phone or internet.
Barak Rabinowitz, Managing Partner at F2 Capital, will share his vision about where smart homes are a game-changer.
Followed by a panel of investors and startup CEO's, moderated by Barak:
Oren Aharon - Investments, Samsung Strategy and Innovation.
Moran Haviv - VP Strategic Initiatives at Sears Israel.
Rami Khawali - Co-founder, MindoLife.
Michael Isakov - CEO, Triple+.
Eran Levy - Managing Director, Enel Innovation Hub.

Hybrid promotes startups with one or more Arab, Bedouin or Druze founders through BizDev, networking and free office space around Israel. We're a joint venture between the 8200 Alumni Association and the Nazareth Business Incubator, and we're not for profit. Our work includes a pre-accelerator for early-stage startups, that we launched this May for 7 companies (and will end late September). Outside the accelerator we work with more mature startup to help them reach customers, investors and eventually scale. The startups we work with range extremely in fields, from cyber security, through technologies for traditional industries like inventory counting and construction, to EDI and chip verification. These teams also present a very unique opportunity, as the OCS offers a special program that sponsors seed fundings, as high as 85% of 2M NIS. I'd be happy of course to elaborate more about the program and our vision.
