Tel Aviv Startup Ecosystem

Tel Aviv is home to one of the world’s most thriving startup ecosystems. Israel has the world’s second-highest funding per capita for startup investment- an estimated 6,000 startups in a country of 9.2 million. 

Research and development are extensive in Tel Aviv, with grants from the state and tax incentives boosting research initiatives. According to the Tel Aviv Municipality, 90% of the world’s tech companies have research and development centers in the region. 

A young (1 in 3 Tel Avivians is 18-35), well-educated population means the city is a hub for innovation, new ideas, and rapid change. There’s no shortage of talent, and global connections make it easy to reach international markets. 

Israel ranks number 3 in the world for AI and machine learning startups, with Nym, Nerualight Trigo, and Exporium leading the way in the city of Tel Aviv. 

The median seed round funding in Tel Aviv is much higher than the global average of $671k. Tel Aviv startups raise on average $2 million in their early-stage rounds. Several VC funds are present in the city and invest in early-stage startups. 

Government funding for startups also helps drive the ecosystem in Tel Aviv. Numerous accelerator programs and non-profit organizations like Start Up Nation Central connect businesses, government, and NGOs from around the world with Israeli startups.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
