Innovation Platform Foundation

We connect emerging markets startups with investors


In the Innovation Platform Foundation we believe that innovation results from interactions with people from the different backgrounds. We are connecting people, ideas and business. Let's exchange ideas, inspiration and experience!
We are aware that innovation requires a comprehensive ecosystem comprising of private enterprises, venture capital, public funding and research and academic institutions.

Local empowerment

Being an independent and non-profit entity we support the development of such ecosystem connecting private and public initiatives from Poland, the European Union and Israel.


Having consulting and tech background, we foster innovation and entrepreneurship as a way to support equal access to information and knowledge for emerging market businesses.
