Calling all Israelis who work in high-tech or are interested in joining the world of high-tech. We are attempting to bring the magic of the startup nation to Toronto.
At our meetups we bring in speakers to discuss ongoing hot topics in the world of tech, we also allow local startups to launch and demo their new products, and of course we devote time for attendees to network and recruit.
Our goal is to create a community for Israelis in Toronto to network, collaborate on projects, and grow their companies.
