About the Companies
GeoSim is one of Israel’s most disruptive companies in urban modeling software applications sector. The team counts with more than 20 people working from Israel, Canada and India. GeoSim’s recent development and field work have resulted in an end-to-end city modeling system with unprecedented 3D street-level detail.
Utilizing more than three million lines of software code and scalable production methodology, GeoSim’s disruptive technology achieves a 10x speedup over traditional techniques. GeoSim’s models can be freely navigated in real time just like a video game.
Water – the single most important resource for urban environment people cannot afford to lose control over. HydroSpin has developed a solution to overcome the energy barrier in the water monitoring industry – explore the patented mini-generator that provides renewable hydroelectric power for smart water networks.
A Smart Water Network
The Hydrospin concept is based on a surprisingly simple idea: use the water running in the city pipelines to generate the electric energy needed to power the water monitoring devices that harvest data all over the water network.
Moojis is a new free and fun emoticon keyboard for iPhone and Android that uses your own face to create a cool emoji. Moojis allows you to be creative and make as many of your own personal emojis as you want, using a photo of your real expressions to show your emotions.

Zen Protocol is a blockchain built for finance. Just as Bitcoin is designed as peer-to-peer money, Zen Protocol is designed for peer-to-peer trade, giving you total control over your financial assets.
Zen is built from the ground up to help developers write fast, scalable and reliable smart contracts. The codebase is written from scratch in F#, C#, and Zen’s own language, ZF*: a dialect of the language F*, designed for provably correct programming. ZF* makes advanced security techniques like formal verification natural to use. Contracts prove the resources they use before running, allowing for compiled contracts that run at native machine speed, and removing the need for a “gas” system. Zen’s oracle solution connects Zen Protocol to real world data, from stock prices to flight cancellations. Oracles are fast, efficient, and profitable for oracle operators. Bitcoin integration lets Zen Protocol’s contracts can react to events on the Bitcoin blockchain, meaning that Bitcoiners can use Zen’s financial system without third parties or intermediaries. Multi Hash Mining, a new way of using many hash functions in Proof of Work mining, creates matching incentives for miners and users of the Zen Protocol.

The company has developed and has patented a medical device for treatment and cure of bone defects such as bone infections (Osteomyelitis – OM). It is an innovative minimal-invasive, non-antibiotic method to deliver silver ions to infected area with local influence and no side effects. Also bone regeneration effect as the technology is based on a proprietary method for long term delivery of ionic silver at the targeted bone defect.
The developer of the EBK™ procedure, a pioneering solution for ophthalmologic surgery focused on the cornea. Orca Surgical brings to market sophisticated surgical device and technologies for refractive surgery, keratoconus, refractive enhancement and treatments for recurrent erosions of the cornea. The EBK™ is an epithelium removal procedure, leaving Bowman layer intact for safer treatment and faster patient’s recovery.
TymCure Ltd. is a medical device company, developing the first device for minimally invasive trans-canal treatment of tympanic perforations. TymCure’s unique medical solution simplifies the tympanoplasty procedure dramatically, eliminating the need for surgery and general anesthesia, while providing identical results.
There is a clinical unmet need for a novel simple, rapid and safe method to position the new formatted nasal septum in position and prevent septoplasty and nasal packing complications. APHI offers an approximation device for nasal mucosa following nasal septum surgery – Combining of a needle, pusher, Nitinol inside cartridge and cutter.
Although Glaucoma is a surgical disease, current surgeries are still complex, risky, penetrating and requires unique expertise and high surgical skills. The company develops a unique shunt made of Electrospun nanofabric material in a special design which is extremely easy to place by ANY ophthalmologist. The Electrospun nanofabric material is known for its non-occluding and highly biocompatibility properties. This advantages allows Eshunt to be natural to the eye and therefore extremely safe and effective.
Due to the need for reducing radial artery occlusion after radial access for angioplasty, The Company develops a device for applying pressure to the radial artery to prevent bleeding while allowing blood flow amount of blood to flow through the radial artery.
