Meet the top 1% of Israel’s Industrial IoT Startups


After a successful first round of #STARTUPNATION TO MITTELSTAND, initiating technical collaborations to boost innovation in manufacturing companies, we are ready for a second round of bringing Israel’s most successful industry startups directly to the region Rhineland!

The #SNTM Matchmaking Days, on April 29th and 30th at STARTPLATZ Cologne, is not just another startup event, but a unique format that specifically brings together the best industrial IoT startups with ground-breaking Industry 4.0 technologies from Israel with corporates and medium-sized companies in the field of manufacturing from the Rhine-Ruhr region.

We bring together what belongs together

German “Mittelstand” is known for their excellence in manufacturing, research and export, while Israeli startups are known for their innovative, disruptive thinking and industry-transforming technologies. #STARTUPNATION TO MITTELSTAND, powered by STARTPLATZ, the Israeli Innovation Authority and The Israel Economic and Trade Mission, established a unique program accelerating innovation processes through collaboration between Israeli startups and German Mittelstand.
