Tel Aviv to Texas: Israeli Companies at SXSW

1 comment
Austin, Texas: SXSW is full of exciting events – about 5,000 of them – all having to do with music, film, and technology. Countries from all over the world come to the festival, bringing their global creativity and diverse cultures with them. This year Israel, the country known for its high-tech industry and its incredible and expansive innovation, makes a splash with around 30 companies hosting exhibits at the i:Made in Israel pavilion.

As featured on Jpost, some notable Israeli companies that will be there include Brandsforce (a technology platform for brands and PR agencies to build and nurture an effective online brand advocacy program), Conduit (white-label toolbars for web and mobile publishers with more than 250 million users including Major League Baseball, Fox News, Groupon, and more), (Facial recognition technology platform that is best known for its partnership with Facebook, scanning all public photos in your social network and suggesting tags for untagged faces), Hashtag Art (a tool to transform the posts and messages of your online fans and followers into a visual mosaic where the average visitor stays for more than 3.5 minutes – launched two years ago at SXSW), and Twtrland (a social analytics tool that builds profiles according to Twitter timelines, helping Twitter users connect and others understand the Twitter universe).

But again, this is only a drop in the bucket. There are around 30 Israeli companies that will be sharing their expertise and creative innovation for the ten-day festival in Austin. A full list with descriptions can be found here.

The presence of these Israeli companies in Austin marks Israel’s excitement and willingness to share its technological development with the world at large.
