Northern Israel's High Tech Map

Who We Are

This platform is our latest project, aimed at putting the spotlight on the technology startup scene in Northern Israel; where we highlight all Northern startups, every tech talent, employer and/or investor in the region. Our goal continues to be to create tech, economic and employment opportunities that will enable us to prosper in the location we love, and choose to live.

The Nortech digital platform is a project created by the community, for the community. Over the past three years, our core team, supported by local professionals and entrepreneurs, has voluntarily helped startups to raise funds, has helped tech companies to find suitable human capital and has supported leading tech talent in relocating to the region.

We helped to establish new high-tech and entrepreneurial hubs across Northern Israel, have produced and hosted the Nortech 2019 and 2020 summits and have grown the high-tech eco-system in the region into an active and lively community.

Each region is unique. Together we are One North.
