Founder Institute Image

Tel Aviv is one of the best places on the planet to build a tech startup, but most of the early-stage entrepreneurs we speak to aren't aware of the local tech resources that are available to help them.

With applications for the Tel Aviv Founder Institute now open, we're excited to release the Tel Aviv Startup Resource Guide, which is currently in Draft v1 below! It was developed by the Tel Aviv Founder Institute and local leaders: Johnathan Aloni (Biz Dev & Legal Manager, A.L. Venture Capital Limited Partnership), Nadav Kaidar (CEO, Enablers Digital Marketing), Roy Sivan (Roy Sivan, Simitu)

This is just a draft, and while we spent many hours on this research, more input is needed. Please leave your comments on this collaborative Google document to help us complete the list. There are definitely omissions on this current version.

Startup Stages


There is no one right way to build a technology company, but for the sake of simplicity we have outlined a basic, common, sequential framework.


1. Idea Stage

This is where new entrepreneurs get inspired, learn best practices, develop skills, validate ideas, and begin to build their team and product.

Inspire 




Educate 



Validate 



2. Launch Stage

In this stage, entrepreneurs establish and formalize the company, develop the product, get feedback from customers, and prepare for the next step.


Start 



Develop



Launch


3. Growth Stage

Here, a startup proves their utility, receives recognition, and scales up. This usually requires funding, angels, VCs, and ways to connect them to startups.

Recognition  



Funding 





Growth 



4. Success Stories

Successful homegrown companies that have raised significant institutional funding, employ a large workforce, or have achieved liquidity.



Supporters


To facilitate the steps, every ecosystem needs strong supporters.

1. Tech Evangelists

A list of potential advisors. Successful local founders who lead the ecosystem & frequently mentor newbies. (i.e. Local leaders who have taken a leadership position, speak at a lot of startup events, mentor all the programs, etc.)


2. Startup Government Resources

Public startup programs, grants, and other services that facilitate local economic development.

3. Talent

Major local business or tech universities and employers that attract and retain local talent.

  • Local Tel Aviv Universities (universities with prominent technical or business programs)
