During the week of May 22—25, 14 Israeli companies with technology solutions for the financial services industry visited the United States for a roadshow through Atlanta and NYC.
On May 22-23, the group participated in the Atlanta Israel Fintech Innovation Conference, organized by Conexx, the Consulate General of Israel in Atlanta. The Israeli companies were joined by local investors, banks and corporations to discuss issues and opportunities in the Fintech space. Attendees included the Federal Reserve Bank, Wells Fargo, Suntrust, GeorgiaTech, Accenture, First Data and others. Following a series of speakers and B2B meetings, the group pack up and headed north to NYC.
On the morning of May 24, the delegation began their day with a breakfast and morning session with one of New York’s most important financial companies for a “Startup Fintech Day.” The Israeli companies networked and presented their solutions to dozens of bankers and technology people at this company, and received feedback.
Following lunch, the companies enjoyed an entire afternoon of B2B meetings (more than 100 in total) at the Wells Fargo Conference Center in midtown, with relevant banks, technology partners and investors. Following the one-on-one afternoon meetings session, the day wrapped up with a networking reception that attracted leaders from the fields of technology, finance and the community. Our partners on this day were Harpia Capital, Fox Horan, the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce and the New Jersey Technology Council.
Thursday, May 25 began with an intimate meeting for the companies at Citigroup. 5 Israeli companies were selected by Citi to present their solutions and meet with decision makers. After the morning session downtown, the delegation traveled to Chelsea to wrap-up the roadshow with a conference at Barclays’s RISE Accelerator. At RISE, all the Israeli companies were invited to present and meet with the investor and technology teams.
