The Maryland/Israel Development Center (MIDC) and its Israeli partner, Trendlines, are bringing a delegation of 13 cutting-edge Israeli start-up companies to Baltimore on March 29. 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 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.
