Israel’s most successful web3 businesses have come together to organize the first annual ETHTLV, which will run from February 1 to 9 in Tel Aviv. The inaugural event aims to invigorate the country’s thriving startup community, establish the community’s foothold in the global web3 scene, and discuss the steps web3 must take to onboard the next billion users.
Attendees of the week-long series will learn from serial entrepreneurs who have forged businesses and become authorities in the web3 space, including:
ETHTLV will feature an action-packed week of keynotes, workshops, and panel discussions complemented by more than a dozen community-led side events. From February 5 to 6, StarkwareSessions will be focused around the L2 scalability network. On February 7, Building Blocks by Collider, Fireblocks and MarketAcross will be sharing expertise and knowledge from entrepreneurs who have successfully built and deployed products and services in web3, while MetaMask, ConsenSys’ leading self-custodial Web3 wallet is hosting a hands-on developer workshop on February 8.
We are excited to be part of the EthTLV week. Tel Aviv has a vibrant and innovative tech environment,” said Dror Avieli, VP of Customer Success at ConsenSys. “We are looking forward to meeting some of the most creative developers and progressive technologists who can help us build the next generation of Web3 dapps and solutions, as well as strengthening our relationship with partners like Starkware and Fireblocks.”
Idan Ofrat, Co-founder & CTO, Fireblocks, said:
“Without a doubt, Israel has some of the greatest tech talents in the world. In the next few years, the world will see make a massive shift into web3, upending the way value is transacted all over the globe. Through ETHTLV, we hope to build upon Israel’s innovative tech culture and ensure that we are ready to take our place in the future of tech.”
The overarching goal of ETHTLV is to turn the startup nation of Israel into a web3 startup nation, and to create hundreds of new jobs within the country’s growing blockchain ecosystem. Israel’s vibrant startup landscape has made it one of the world’s startup capitals, one that has developed 97 unicorns (privately-held companies valued at over $1 billion) and boasts the highest density of startups per capita. In 2021, more than $25 billion was invested into Israeli startups, a record figure for the country.
Adam Benayoun, GP of Collider, said:
“ETHTLV provides an incredible opportunity for founders, developers and investors to come together from around the world and explore the cutting edge of Web 3.0 technology in one of the most exciting tech hubs: Israel. Israel has the deepest pool of tech talent, a vibrant entrepreneurial culture, and top tier venture capital firms – making it the ideal destination for blockchain innovation. I am proud to be setting the infrastructure for future events that will provide access to opportunities in this burgeoning space.”
Itai Elizur, COO of MarketAcross added:
“After helping organize major crypto events in Paris, Korea, Singapore, & Austin, it gives me great pride to invite everyone this time to my home city, Tel-Aviv, as part of ETH TLV. The Israeli builders’ community is one of the best in the world, and the fact all these companies and OGs are coming to our small nation should solidify that fact. We have a lot to offer, come see for yourself.”
