Last Tuesday, the MIDC and their business development manager Adam Lipert held their summer’s young professionals happy hour at Owen’s Ordinary in North Bethesda. Young professionals representing start-ups such as Place Tempo, multiple embassies including the Israeli Embassy, and biotech non-profits to name a few, came out to network and mingle. Attendees were treated to a talk by the CEO of an Israeli multispectral camouflage company located here in Maryland who discussed how his company was able to enter the US market in Maryland as well as how he used his experience in the special forces to succeed in business and grow a company.
“The event portrayed one of the many Israeli companies expanding business in Maryland building upon competitive advantages and cutting edge technologies while demonstrating mutual economic benefit, job creation and growth in both countries,” said MIDC volunteer and organizer Ilana Moyal (Acting Head of Economic Mission for the Ministry of Finance at the Israeli Embassy in Washington D.C.).
The MIDC would like to thank everyone who came out and we look forward to our next event and seeing everyone again (see our list of future events here! Please feel free to reach out to us anytime to discuss business opportunities in Israel and Maryland including grants from the BIRD Foundation which provides matching grants of up to $1 million for joint US-Israel R&D for new product collaboration.
