Our connection to the NetherlandsOne of GKI Group's main goals is connecting for Israeli entrepreneurs with the top startup countries. Join us on our first stop - Netherlands.
Over the past few months, we’ve worked hard on building strong relations with key people of the tech industry in the Netherlands, focusing on Amsterdam.
We came with a mission - become the connection to the Netherlands for Israeli startups, entrepreneurs, and investors. We came to strengthen the connection, deepen the relations between these two countries and work for better future together.
Our recent activities:
- Gathered together major players in the tech industry for a lunch at the W hotel and discussed opportunities that could help every one of the attendees.
Among the members, we had members from StartupAmsterdam, StartupDelta, Amsterdam Capital Week, TheNextWeb, Fintech Holland and others
- Made connections with co-working spaces in Amsterdam that could help us host events and find office space for those in need, such as B. Amsterdam, TQ, WeWork and Merkspace.
- Met with Aviv Shir-On, the ambassador of Israel to the Netherlands, to discuss collaborations, find ways to bridge between Israeli startups and the Dutch tech ecosystem and vice-versa. He showed interest in our cause and we're looking forward to this new partnership, and achieving our mutual goals and vision.
- Our CEO, Lital Kalkshtein, joined the board of The Netherlands-Israel Chamber of Commerce that strives to develop and publicize business opportunities in Holland and Israel.
