The India – Israel Start-Up Connect Series in collaboration with TiE Mumbai was launched on November 11th 2020. TiE Global is a nonprofit venture devoted to entrepreneurs in all industries, at all stages, from incubation, throughout the entrepreneurial lifecycle. The idea behind this event was to develop an India-Israel corridor. The current situation has given start-ups all over the world an opportunity to collaborate and cooperate to build better technologies together.

 

The first of the India – Israel Start-Up Connect Series was a knowledge series. This knowledge series was an in-depth sectoral session focused on Healthcare wherein experts and startup founders from both the sides articulated innovation, business models, emerging new tech – Neo Digitization Era, changing trends and patterns especially as a result of the pandemic, probable insights into the new world order & the scope for expansion in the years to come.

He leads Sanara Ventures, a healthcare innovation fund backed by Phillips and Teva. GGTUDE was the Israeli start-up participant. GGtude combines cognitive behavioral psychology, mobile technology, and brain science to create personal health products with ready-to-use training and self-management tools for dealing with anxiety, obsessions, and body-image and self-esteem issues, very relevant in the current times.

 

The expert from the Indian side was Mr. Amit Mookim – Managing Director at IQVIA, a Fortune 500 organization and a leading healthcare information, technology and research organization. He has a successful track record of building healthcare businesses from the ground up, exceeding profitability goals, and driving increased revenue and market share. NeuroEquilibrium was the Indian start-up participant . Founded to treat the humongous number of balance disorders in patients, NeuroEquilibrium™ Diagnostic Systems is transforming the healthcare sector through breakthrough innovations to create one of the most advanced vertigo and balance assessment platforms in the world.
