Netanyahu's Google Doodle and Google's new high tech startup centerPrime Minister Netanyahu was at the new Google HiTechStartUp center in Tel Aviv Sunday, and this is what he doodled while he was there (Hat Tip: Mrs. Carl):
And for those wondering about the new startup center....
Launched in March 2012, Google has managed to turn its East London Campus building into a warm and vibrant nest for local – and visiting – Internet startups and other players in the ecosystem, offering co-working office and event spaces and meeting areas in the buzzy ‘Tech City’ area.
Now, the online search and advertising giant is setting up something similar in Tel Aviv. Which is, needless to say, a world-class hub for innovation in what many call a “start-up nation”.
This morning, Google officially opened its second Campus in the Israeli city. Dubbed a “one-floor event & community space and pre-accelerator program”, Google Campus TLV will cater to local early-stage startups and developers with tech talks, events, hackathons and whatnot.
The space measures 1,500 square metres in total.There's lots more too. Read the whole thing.
And if you're an entrepreneur, you might want to look into Google's Launchpad program.
In addition, Google is introducing the Launchpad – a two-week boot camp for early stage startups. The program is held in collaboration with different partners, including incubators, technological hubs and educational institutions.And if you need a lawyer, call me.
Launchpad will help with subjects including user interface, product strategy and technology, marketing, business development and Internet measurement tools. The first programs will operate in cooperation with Upwest Labs and The Junctions, and later on there will be programs for startups supported by the Tel Aviv Angel Group.
