2016 Start Tel Aviv Winner Andrea Palmer, Founder & CEO, Awake Labs
"Start Tel Aviv was an incredible experience to expore one of the most innovative countries in the world with inspirational founders from 31 countries. It has shifted my perspective about managing risk, choosing target markets, and optimizing efficiency." - Andrea Palmer
2015 Start Tel Aviv Winner Ronen Benin, Founder & CEO, RightBlue Labs
"I had the honour of winning the 2015 Start Tel Aviv competition, which sent me to Israel to participate in the DLD Startup Festival as well. The experience took me to both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to see exactly what it is that makes their ecosystems thrive. The experience was phenomenal. The Israeli startup mantra is effectively "anything can be done", which was something I took back with me to my startup in Toronto. My biggest takeaway was the fact that they see everybody as a potential innovator, and know that empowering even the lowest seniority employees can pay tremendous dividends. " - Ronen Benin
