  • Major North American companies are asked to pre-select, from the prospect list, those emerging technology companies that they would like to meet at the event.
  • Emerging companies are requested to specify the major companies they would like to meet.
  • The top twenty emerging companies (fifteen from Israel and five from the Southeast US) that emerge through the matchmaking will do short presentations at the event to be followed by pre-arranged one-on-one meetings.
  • At the event, opportunity is given to arrange additional meetings.
  • Also included will be keynote presentations, networking receptions woven in-between the presentations and one on one meetings.
