About this event
Germany is Europe’s economic engine and Frankfurt is one of Germany’s most dynamic and innovative regions. Known as Europe’s financial center, Frankfurt and the surrounding RheinMain region are also the birthplace of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine and home to Germany’s largest and ever-growing cluster of cloud datacenters as well as a fast growing tech and startup community with a B2B focus.
Lord Mayor of Frankfurt Peter Feldmann and Chairman of Tel Aviv City Council Lior Shapira will discuss the economic ties between Frankfurt and Tel Aviv and celebrate 40 years of friendship as sister cities.
In addition, two of Frankfurt’s best-connected and most well-known representatives of the innovation and startup community will talk about how companies from Israel can successfully connect with German clients, investors and innovators.
