Linking Israeli Startups to Relevant Business Professionals

Link.IL helps Israeli startups connect with US market experts. Founded by EFI and Prof. Mark Cohen (Justin Potter Professor of American Competitive Analysis, Emeritus, at Vanderbilt University), it pairs startups with seasoned professionals. To apply, startups submit a one-page overview including their stage, funding, website, and goals. Startups that are admitted to the program will receive weekly meetings with their mentors, for a period that will be decided by both sides.
