Assistive Technologies from the Startup-Nation. Workspace-Accessibility in the focus
Assistive technologies play a crucial role in making inclusive living possible. Societies recognize the importance of providing an inclusive environment for the wellbeing of the whole population. And economies cannot afford to leave talented people aside and not benefit from their skills and perspective.
Israel as the Startup-Nation is well known for its Cybersecurity or Healthcare Innovations. It is less known for advancements in the sector of assistive technologies. This should change and we want to raise awareness for the opportunities that cutting-edge technologies from Israel can provide for making our infrastructure more accessible.
During this two-hour event we will focus on solutions that make workspaces more accessible. Thereby we address and warmly invite companies, distributors and associations from this field to our pitch-sessions as well as crisp keynotes and discussions.
