24/07/2012 - Bizcamp Tel Aviv Entrepreneur Competition Launched
The UK's most promising technology startup owners are being offered the chance to learn, make connections, have fun and get inspired on an all-expenses-paid trip to Israel's entrepreneurial capital, Tel Aviv.
The inaugural Bizcamp Tel Aviv competition is offering one UK winner the chance to join a delegation of ten entrepreneurs from ten different European countries in Israel, where they will gain a unique insight into how the country earned its nickname as the 'Startup Nation'.
Organised by the city of Tel Aviv, Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The Next Web, Bizcamp's ten-day itinerary is formed around a schedule of business meetings and workshops with Israel's most successful start-ups, entrepreneurs, tech investors and leading multinational tech firms.
Bizcampers will also win exclusive 'access all areas' visits to R&D centres in Tel Aviv, such as the Google Incubator, Microsoft Accelerator and the eBay Social Centre, where they will get to see up close what these global firms are developing next.
Flights, accommodation and free entry to the three-day DLD Festival in Tel Aviv are included in the prize.
H.E. Daniel Taub, Ambassador of Israel to the UK and competition judge, said:
"Israel is one of the most exciting places to launch a start-up, and Tel Aviv is at the forefront of the global trend for innovative web and media technology. Bizcamp is a wonderful way to share this entrepreneurial spirit with enterprising individuals and companies here in the UK."
Competition entrants must be aged between 23 and 30, and must available to travel between 14 and 24 October 2012.
The deadline for entries is 22 August 2012.
