US-Israel New Media Business Exchange Testimonials: (Read More)

The New Media Business Exchange was a hit in my book.  The spirit of genuine, positive conversation was alive and actually stirred a sense of inquiry in me that I haven't fully felt since graduate school.  Thank you for enabling that.  I have a few takeaways with companies that are logical matches for me and my work, so the tactical stuff is there.

I appreciate the opportunity to speak and participate at the event yesterday and today, and hope that the emerging companies saw a lot of value as well.  The event was wonderfully organized and orchestrated and I was proud to be a part of it.

The New Media Exchange was a unique opportunity for us to meet with a number of excellent companies in the new media arena.  The fact that these companies were all pre-qualified to attend meant that most were extremely relevant to our business.

In than two days, we met 17 companies, every one worth a trip alone.  We met with AOL, Erickson, Turner Broadcasting, the Weather channel and many others.  A key point was that we met the right people.  They received information on Dyuna in advance and came prepared for our meetings.  We left Atlanta with a number of strong open leads.

This event gave us the opportunity to meet relevant companies and potential investors.  Plus, we met a number of Israeli companies at different stages of development.  The event was very well organized and it opened a number of doors for us at major companies.

I thoroughly enjoyed participating in this event as a facilitator.  I believe the company I facilitated was able to establish contact with a number of key individuals within the Turner/Time Warner family.  I also particularly liked the VC panel.  Overall, a great event and fantastic host(s).

The VC discussion yesterday alone was worth the price of admission.  Broadly speaking, I believe the structure of the event was excellent, and I believe that the the 20 minute speed dating format appealed both to the Israeli companies as well as the potential American investors, partners and customers they sought to speak with.

The entire program was the very best that I have attended and Turner was a great host company. Very positive experience for all participants from both sides of the Atlantic.

I just wanted to thank you all for inviting us to the business exchange. I had a fantastic time, learned a lot and made good connections with both companies and VCs. My facilitator, Jon, did a great job arranging the meetings and I am sure I will be working with him in the future.

It was a very good event and a great way to be introduced to a number of very innovative companies within a very short period of time.  All the company presentations were concise and to the point and most of all, I appreciated their ability to stay well within their time limits and still communicate all of the key points.
