About The Israel Economic Mission to the West Coast

The Israel Economic Mission to the West Coast operates within the public sector but is private-sector minded. We act as a bridge between the west coast and Israeli business communities and are here to connect entrepreneurs, investors, and executives from a wide variety of different industries. Our mission is to generate win-win collaborations: We support US-based companies in achieving their innovation and business goals by connecting them to Israeli innovation and cutting-edge technologies.
