we will hear from leading Israeli investors about the issue of geographical distance between investors and start-ups.
Many entrepreneurs in peripheral cities in Israel and around the world are facing the issue of geographic distance from investors.
The kind of questions that are repeatedly coming up:
“Should we move to a central city in order to attract investors?”
“Do we need to develop our product/idea in our city and move only when we get to investment point?”
