Accelerators and Incubators
An accelerator is a general term used for a wide range of programs intended to promote startups within a short period of time through the use of guidance and mentoring. The accelerator industry started 10 years ago with the founding of Y Combinator in March 2005 in Silicon Valley. Among the many well-known companies that started off in the accelerator are Dropbox and Airbnb, each worth tens of billions of dollars today. Even though people dismissed it at the beginning, the accelerator model has proven itself.
Accelerator programs usually incubate up to 10 firms at a time for a period of three months. During that period, the startups’ founders must work at the accelerator site, where they are exposed to all sorts of educational components and mentoring, as well as receiving a package of professional services — including help from and meetings with investors and technology, business and marketing experts.

No nation has invested more in water technology than Israel.
Israel has developed a system for recycling, purifying, storing and conveying treated waste-water when and where farms need it, along with world-renowned drip-irrigation innovations to use the precious liquid most efficiently.
The revolutionary idea of using purified waste-water for farming was pioneered in the 1980s, when Israel’s natural water resources could no longer support its burgeoning agriculture.
Currently we work with dozens of innovative companies developing water desalination, irrigation, and purification solutions.
