DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival

DLD Tel Aviv Digital Conference is Israel's largest international hi-tech gathering, featuring hundreds of startups, VC’s, angel investors and leading multinationals. Last year over 4000 people attended the conference. There is no other city in the world more appropriate to showcase the cutting edge innovations, digitization and science which connects business, creative and social leaders on a global scale.


Among the different events:

Start Tel Aviv brings together startup representatives from 31 countries around the world who have been chosen to participate in a global collaboration program in Tel Aviv.  They are brought together to learn from each other’s startup experiences and hear from experts, mentors and investors.


The Cities Summit, Monday 26th,  is one of the main events of the week and will take place at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The Annual Tel Aviv Cities Summit, bringing together entrepreneurs, city innovators, city makers, senior urban administrators, and visionaries from cities around the world to experience the thriving innovative ecosystem and the spirit of Tel Aviv and discuss the burning issues that cities must address today.


The DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Conference starts on Tuesday 27th September with Yossi Vardi (DLD chairman) and Steffi Czerny (DLD founder), followed by the ceremonial opening of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.  The Festival will run for two days in the HaTachana and will host a plethora of sessions and speakers.


Various events will also be taking place on Rothschild Boulevard on the evening of Tuesday 27th. This includes: Urban Happenings where a host of meetups will provide opportunities for global networking; the Innovation Boulevard event, which will showcase the latest tech wearables and gadgets. The whole evening will be an amazing visual representation of the startup ecosystem and innovations in Tel Aviv.  


Over the past thirty years Israel succeeded in becoming a world-class technology development center and a leading exporter of innovation. Israel is known as the "Startup Nation" and attracts more venture capital dollars per-capita than any other country. Equally important, Israel has produced more companies listed on the NASDAQ than any other country after the United States.


The focal point of the Israeli Startup Nation is Tel Aviv-Yafo - the nation's "Startup City".  Tel Aviv's hi-tech industry encompasses more than 1,500 companies (Israeli and foreign), comprising approximately 23% of all hi-tech companies in Israel. Of these, over 1000 are early-stage startup companies – one of the highest concentrations of startup companies per capita in the world, ranked second after the Silicon Valley. The city was named Europe’s leading tech hub by the Wall Street Journal and the #1 startup ecosystem outside the US by Compass.

The city's proposition relies on its two primary assets: the leading innovation and startup ecosystem, packaged in the city’s young, cosmopolitan and non-stop character. The creative energy feeds the city's unparalleled early-stage innovative ecosystem and acts as a large-scale accelerator for the country’s high tech industry. Tel Aviv's innovation ecosystem is composed of leading high tech companies and multinational R&D centers, world class programmers and engineers and an experienced community of veteran entrepreneurs and investors.


The main location of Tel Aviv's innovation scene is the picturesque Rothschild Boulevard, just minutes from the beach, lined with trendy cafes and top notch restaurants. The boulevard and surrounding area boasts an impressive range of incubators, accelerators and co-working spaces, and hundreds of startups specializing in e-security, e-social and e-commerce.
