Ahead of the event, Emirates Angels Investors Association Chairman Masaood Al Masaood said, “Salam, Shalom and peace be upon you. We’re excited about this historic moment for the region, and to expand a community of peaceful coexistence, and most importantly build a powerful engine of economic and cultural exchange. We look forward to showcasing our startups to the world and the Israeli startup ecosystem and to Israeli investors, and we look forward to looking at the Israeli startups.” 


OurCrowd CEO Jon Medved said, “I think the real opportunity here is not only investment, but joint activity, joint development, joint ventures and bottom line: working together. The UAE and Bahrain are entrepreneurial communities that are true leaders in many areas including smart cities, transportation, and healthcare, with some of the most advanced hospitals in the world. In logistics, shipping, and aviation – in these areas, we don’t look to lead, we look to learn, we look to work together, to find entrepreneurs that we can back and make investments and bring capital from our investor base from around the world.
