Innovation Showcase

Chicago, IL

The Innovation Showcase on November 2nd attracted nearly 100 people at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. The purpose was to learn more about the Angel and Venture Capital markets in Israel, with presentations from two crowd-funded investment firms (OurCrowd and iAngels) and two rising stars in the market (MDClone, which provides privacy-compliant healthcare datasets; and Via, which is Uber-like but focuses on ride-sharing). After, Howard I Bernstein was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his distinguished service in fostering business between Israel and Chicago. And finally, everyone engaged in spirited networking while wine tasting and sampling the Wolfgang Puck buffet!
