"Our collaboration with SOSA is our most meaningful international partnership. From the beginning, it was of the utmost importance to us to be able to connect the German insurance ecosystem to the Israeli startup ecosystem. SOSA has been a great matchmaker and we are constantly helping each other out on many projects including; inviting startups for innovation workshops, getting great Israeli speakers to talk about the industry and bridge Israeli Insurtech firms with the German market. In 2018, we held a Demo Day in Tel Aviv with 18 startups and 7 insurance companies. The result was 15 potential POC’s in the making with many of the representatives holding follow up meetings with the business units in Germany."
Sebastian Pitzler, Managing Director
"We spoke to several hubs in Tel Aviv but it was clear that SOSA was the ideal partner for us. SOSA’s major ties with investors, a large network of multinationals and insights into real-world competencies are just what our city needs. This is exactly what we were looking for both our young start up scene and the digital transformation of Cologne as a business hub."
