Israel Tech Scene 2006-2011
I attended a number of tech events in Israel – really I could have gone to Israel straight after uni, 4 years earlier.
The first event I attended was the IVA Annual Conference 2006 – press release. This was a great conference and Shimon Peres even accepted an award. Amazing days just before mass use of smartphones!
I had a few meetings in Herzliya Pituach after that event in order to raise finance for GrooveTip or whatever came next.
In July 2008, I went to TWS2008.
In August 2008 I attended iDrink #9 at Beach Bar in Herzliya Pituach.
Then in September I made it to Mobile Monday.
On 14 Feb 2009 while building Twitya.com, I attended the tech workshop Eurekamp.
(See me at timecodes 3.14, 3.22, 6:03, 10:38, 12:20)
Below pic 1 below was used for an Ormus King 1 scene, in pic 3 Yossi Vardi can be seen sitting. Pic 4 are notes for the talk I gave – Web Conglomerate.
After Twitya, I attended the TechAviv Town Hall Meeting on 2 Sep ’09 having already begun work on Bopgig.
Then I submitted a business plan on 17 Nov ’09 into the TechAviv Angels group for judgement regarding Bopgig.
I proceeded with Bopgig using US-based developers after that comp.
Development is commencing.

In April 2011, I went to TheMarker Com.Vention while still working on Bopgig.
And that was my final tech conference attended in Israel… for now!
