Israeli companies visit exchange hosted by MUSC

Eight Israeli companies were in Charleston, May 6-7, at the U.S.-Israel Neurotechnology Business Exchange.

The conference and matchmaker event was designed to further business and research relationships with U.S. stakeholders and to attract innovative companies to South Carolina. Hosted by MUSC, the event offered a focused opportunity for Israeli companies to present their technologies and meet with leading companies, health care institutions and investors in North America with the goal of fostering joint venture research and development, investment, clinical and marketing alliances.

At the event, South Carolina Department of Commerce Secretary Robert Hitt and Consul General of Israel to the Southeast Opher Aviran announced the decision to form an agreement between South Carolina and Israel to further collaboration in the field of industrial research and development. This agreement will create a funding mechanism for joint industrial research and development projects between Israeli and South Carolina companies and universities.

The event was built on the premise that the United States remains one of the major hubs for innovation, development and commercialization of new products for the diagnosis and treatment of brain disorders. Israeli companies working in this field have seen that their presence in the U.S. is a critical step for success.
