We've had an incredible experience at SOSA NYC. The team goes above and beyond and the community has that perfect mix of a laid-back yet professional vibe. Through SOSA we've met leading Israeli government officials, Fortune 500 executives, and cutting-edge startups. Working here has provided more of a competitive advantage than we originally anticipated - a very pleasant surprise! We couldn't be happier with our decision to join.

Jacob Yormak

Partner

Being a part of the SOSA NYC community has been a wonderful experience for me. Through the SOSA network, I’m able to stay plugged into the Israeli tech ecosystem, meet entrepreneurs, startups, and corporations, and also stay involved in the New York tech scene. As an investor, it’s extremely important to me to have access to the variety of early-stage startups and to be able to contribute to the community. Through SOSA, I’m able to do both.

Through our partnership with SOSA, we've gained a broader and deeper understanding of the Israeli tech ecosystem, enabling us to adjust Munich Re's innovation strategy accordingly.

Innovation Manager

The SOSA membership proved to be extremely valuable for Meron, much more than simply the office space. Through SOSA, our team is exposed to new startups, participates in relevant events and gets relevant opportunities to support the ecosystem. SOSA introduced us to several startups, all relevant for our investment strategy, and through SOSA we met multiple international corporations who are seeking technologies similar to those we invest in. The relationship with those corporations allows us to better understand emerging needs for technology innovation and to generate collaboration opportunities for our portfolio.
