An invitation-only online event to learn about powerful business connections between Israel and South Korea and an investment opportunity in our strategic Israel- Korea venture fund.
Both Tel Aviv and Seoul are globally recognized centers of excellence in innovation. As just one significant indicator, Israel is #1 in R&D spending per capita, while South Korea is #2 (source: OECD). The NH-OC Global Open Innovation Fund is focused on the powerful combination of Israeli innovation with Korean excellence in production and distribution, globally. It is designed to create global champions in its focus sectors, including Semiconductors, Smart Mobility, Robotics, Cybersecurity, and AI.
Geared to institutional investors, the event will feature:
• Executives from Korean multinationals, such as Samsung, will explain why they invest in Israel.
• Startup executives will explain the local and global landscape for tech investing and scaleup.
• Israeli and Korean VCs will provide insights into how the fund will leverage the synergies of the two countries, as well as the focus on key sectors.
The $80M fund already has $48M committed. Co-managed by seasoned VCs in both countries, it gives international investors access to rare venture capital opportunities in select Israeli and Korean startups.
