Israel Solidarity Forum of the German Economy

Israel Solidarity Forum of the German Economy

7. December 2023   10:00 - 11:30

This forum is hosted by the European Leadership Network (ELNET), exactly two months after Hamas’ brutal attacks on Israel. While the whole country is suffering, the war against Hamas also impacts Israel’s economy, in particular the tech sector for which Israel is known as Startup Nation.

Many companies face severe personnel shortages due to reservists being called up for defense, as well as decreased international venture capital investments. Israel has learned to be resilient and adaptable from past conflicts, successfully overcoming these challenges. Yet, what holds utmost importance now is fostering ongoing commitment and starting new partnerships with international businesses. ELNET has been linking the German economy with the Israeli innovation ecosystem through its German Israeli Network of Startups & Mittelstand (GINSUM) since 2020. The Israel Solidarity Forum of the German Economy now strives to inform about Israel’s current economic situation, express solidarity, and highlight ways for support.
