And Tezos Israel, an innovation lab that operates in the Israeli Ecosystem and globally to promote usability, development, and technological training in one of the world’s most leading blockchain protocols, has joined hands to bring access and world recognition for blockchain start-ups from around the world.
Tezos Foundation globally supports hundreds of startups per year and is positioned as a leading protocol in developing CBDC, NFTs, and STOs. Tezos’ activity in Israel is unique in terms of its scope, the exposure to decision and policymakers, and the technological and financial support it offers.
“In Israel alone, more than 1500 new startups are established every year in different sectors. In the blockchain, only a few tens – but the potential is huge. This partnership with Draper University is a stepping stone for entrepreneurs from both Israel and around the world, to not just gain access to investors, but to have a place where they can develop their ideas with tools and mentorship, raise funds, and scale globally by the Tezos Foundation around the world.”

Each division is dedicated to a particular stage in development which includes Draper University, Boost VC, DFJ, and Draper Venture Network, a $2B in seed to growth capital across a network of +20 independent VC funds worldwide.
“Draper University was the first institution to offer a blockchain education program, and we are excited to partner with Tezos Israel to bring more entrepreneurs into the ecosystem.”
