  • Identify a list of attractive Israeli and Southeast US based emerging broadband technology companies and categorize them according to the targeted technologies.

  • Identify a list of major cable broadband companies (MSO’s, vendors, and VC’s) in North America (NA) that would have an interest in the targeted technologies.

  • Major NA companies are asked to identify technology areas of interest and to pre-select, from the prospect list, those emerging technology companies that they would like to meet at the event.

  • Emerging companies are requested to specify the major NA companies they would like to meet.

  • The top thirty emerging companies (twenty from Israel and ten from the Southeast US) that emerged through the matchmaking will do short presentations at the event to be followed by pre-arranged one-on-one meetings.

  • At the event, opportunity is given to arrange additional meetings.

  • Also included will be a special workshop by CableLabs, keynote presentations, networking receptions are woven in-between the presentations and one on one meetings.
Background:

Israel is one of the world’s most dynamic sources for high tech companies and with original and cutting edge technologies, particularly In the field of communications. The country has produced over 4,000 start-ups in the past few years, and has a robust venture capital industry to support entrepreneurs. Outside the US and Canada, Israel has more companies publicly traded on the US exchanges than any other country. Virtually every major US technology company has development operations in Israel or investments in Israeli companies including IBM, Motorola, Cisco, Microsoft, HP, and more. A joint US-Israel foundation, BIRD, supports joint venture R&D projects between American and Israeli companies.

The US is the premier global cable broadband market, and, with the support of CableLabs, the recognized gatekeeper of new cable broadband technologies. Atlanta, Georgia is a major center for Telecommunications with noted leadership in cable broadband. Home to Cox Communications, one of the nation’s largest cable service providers, the community has also spawned some of the major equipment and infrastructure vendors to the industry including Scientific-Atlanta, Arris, and more. Through the Georgia Center for Advanced Telecommunications Technologies and Georgia Tech’s Broadband Institute, the industry has access to state support and academic research resources for major corporations and emerging companies.
