Baltimore will host a delegation of "Start-up Nation" entrepreneurs later this month, as part of its flagship program, MarketReach America.
The Maryland/Israel Development Center (MIDC) and its Israeli partner, Trendlines, are bringing the delegation of 13 cutting-edge Israeli start-up companies to Baltimore on March 29, 2012. The roadshow offers potential investors and collaborators a chance to meet one-on-one with the companies. A community-wide presentation will take place at 5:00 p.m.
The seed-stage companies range in discipline from IT and med-tech to green-tech and agri-tech. Among the group is Sol Chip, which has developed a breakthrough technology addressing the needs of remote or mobile devices that operate autonomously, prolonging battery life, reducing environmental hazard, and improving battery-charging technology. Sol Chip’s Solar Battery™ harvests light energy to power billions of individual appliances.
“This is a terrific opportunity for seed- and early-stage investors to get in on the ground floor of the powerhouse that is Israeli innovation,” said Abba David Polliakoff, MIDC Chairman of the Board.
