Meet the Israeli candidate for Chivas - The Venture


No less than 116 Israeli startups applied to Chivas - The Venture!

After a suspenseful screening process, our team of judges (headed by Esther Barak Landes, Yoel Cheshin, Hanoch Barkat and Cecile Blilious) chose the Israeli runner up: "Eye Control", a startup by Itai Kornberg, Or Retzkin and prize 4 life organization, that develops a new and affordable technology that will help people with ALS communicate with their eyes.

The post declaring the chosen Israeli startup gathered almost 1200 likes, and dozens of likes and shares. 

Itay and Or will fly during the spring to The Venture's special accelerator program at the Silicon Valley, where they will compete alongside other social entrepreneurs from all over the world for the first prize - 1,000,000 million dollars to execute their vision. The final winner will be declared at a grand event in July.

We're crossing our fingers!
