Lauching of B-Hive Tel Aviv
B-Hive aims to build a strong international ecosystem of technologies for financial services (“TechForFin”) where expertise, networking, resources and technology can be shared. Together with our partners (leading banks, insurers and market infrastructures), we pursue the mission of supporting our members in their efforts to deal with the impact of digital technology on the financial landscape. We believe that building bridges between important fintech hubs and the Eurozone enables both European and non-European companies to grow and expand.
Israel is home to an important and fast-growing TechForFin sector that benefits from a deep-rooted entrepreneurial culture. Our B-Hive Israel hub aims to build bridges between Israeli technologies and the Eurozone market. On the one hand, we provide our Israeli members with a base at the very heart of the Eurozone along with a large community that shares its expertise and network.
Israeli companies willing to land and expand in Europe can find in B-Hive a strong supporting hand providing both support and guidance through the help of numerous partners ranging from traditional financial actors to dynamic startups, scale-ups and the government. On the other hand, we help our European corporate partners find the technologies that suit them in Israel.
B-Hive goes beyond a mere incubator or a co-working space. It provides its members and partners with firm expertise and networking from a large community with an access to market, funding and government. In order to do so, B-Hive believes three elements are key to the way we organize our activities and support to members: discovery, connection and obviously helping them grow.
