Startup Dispatches: Crowdmii And MyMDband

I’ve hinted at this with a few tweets and Facebook status updates but I’ll spill the beans. Along with my amazing co-founder, David, our startup Sovevos has been accepted into one of Israel’s most well regarded high tech accelerators programs. We’re at The Hive run by Gvahim and it’s like I’ve gone back to school.

Almost every day we travel to Tel Aviv University and sit in a shared office space. We won our spot after filling in a form, an extensive interview and a final “Shark Tank” (Dragon’s Den for the UK readers) pitching session. Competition was fierce and we’re surrounded by bright people working on smart business ideas.

As and when I get introduced to new companies that impress me I’ll share them here. Today I had a meeting with the founder of a new crowd funding platform that will focus exclusively on Israel: Crowdmii. The “m-i-i” at the end stands for Made In Israel.

They’re in a kind of pre-launch phase but they have one project up on the site which is a combination of reliable lo-tech, high-tech and a great charity cause: they’re raising money to give a medical information bracelet to every Holocaust survivor in Israel.

Here’s a video about MyMDband
