Founded In Israel was inspired by Founded In Holland, an incredible project I stumbled upon a few weeks ago.

A few Dutch entrepreneurs wanted to promote the thriving startup scene in Holland by promoting startup logos.

I thought this was a perfect fit for Israel’s tech brand and in particular a great match for Mapped In Israel’s strategy. Together with LeumiTech and partners: Tai Kaish and Nir Kouris we started working on Founded In Israel.

Later on we discovered that other nations were getting on board as well through the amazing Founded X initiative which provides a platform similar to Founded In Holland for other countries to use.

We plan on expanding this project to continue to promote the Start-Up Nation around the globe. Make sure to check out Founded In Israel on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date.
