“Disrupt Me” showcased the manifold opportunities provided by the Israeli ecosystem in terms of open innovation and supported us in assessing our own positioning with respect to innovation practices and processes. During the visit in Israel we engaged in tailored discussion with several Israeli start-ups cherry picked based on our needs and requirements, as well as enjoyed a tailored company program that led us to visit facilities and exchanged views with the main players in the field of Israeli Venture Capital. It has been an amazing learning experience for the whole team.

The “Disrupt Me” programme facilitated a unique, fully immersive experience in the Israeli ecosystem. Not only did we better understand the mechanics that make Israel such fertile ground for innovation, but we left better equipped to address the innovation barriers in our own organization. No matter where your company is in its innovation journey, Disrupt Me is sure to inspire and provide tangible insights to push innovation even further.
