Our Vision

We’re the first Israeli-pan-Asian startup accelerator and microfund, which goal is to create and nurture successful joint startups across the continent.

Our challenge is to overcome the lack of awareness, cultural gaps and language barriers, to make Asian markets reachable for Israeli startups and vice versa.

We’re doing that by operating strategic ‘gateway’ hubs, including Tel Aviv, Singapore, Seoul and Hong Kong.

Tel Aviv is ranked the 2nd best ecosystmem in the world, right after Silicon Valley, but Israeli startups tackle 46% smaller market then their peers in the US.

At the same time, we see more and more Asian investors being active in Israeli startups, but there’s still a huge cultural gap that harms the creation of a real Israel-Asian startup network.

Coming from a ‘bottom-up’ approach, StartupEast’s mission is to create and nurture a large community from which joint succesful Israeli-pan-Asian startups are to be established.
