Hartford to host CT-Israel Tech Summit

HARTFORD – MetroHartford Alliance, the region’s economic development leader, the city’s Chamber of Commerce, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford will host the Second Annual Connecticut-Israel Technology Summit on Wednesday, June 6, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Rentschler Field in East Hartford.
A resource for Israeli companies seeking to establish a presence in Connecticut and domestic companies seeking to work abroad, the Connecticut-Israel Technology Summit will focus on life science, security and defense, and feature a luncheon keynote speech presented by Eli Groner, Economic Minister to the United States. The summit will kick-off with remarks from the Consul General of Israel, Ido Aharoni, and Governor Dannel P. Malloy, and include panel discussions for developing Connecticut-Israeli business collaborations, academic collaborations and unique funding options. Breakout/Dealmaking sessions will offer attendees the opportunity for business-2-business, business-2-government and business-2-funding.
“In just a short time, the synergies between Connecticut and Israeli businesses are proving to be powerful links for business expansion,” said Sandra Johnson, vice president and director of business development for MetroHartford Alliance. “The Summit provides a wonderful opportunity for both foreign and domestic business leaders to network and gain strategic insights while developing international business collaborations.”
“Our engagement with the business community has proven to generate more connections and opportunities to cultivate relationships between Israeli and Connecticut companies that we hope will ultimately yield growth for all,” said Laura Zimmerman, director of the Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Council.
