IsraeliMappedinNY provides detailed map of Israeli-owned startup companies popping up all over the city
As more and more startup companies continue to pour out of Israel - a.k.a. Startup Nation - many of them, once finding success, head over to establish offices and conquer the high-tech industry over in New York City.
So much so, in fact, that finding these Israeli startups have proven a chore, prompting a new mapping service, IsraeliMappedinNY, offering an easy guide to finding Israeli companies based in the Big Apple.
Fiverr, Wix, Billguard, Bizzabo, and Kenshoo are just a few of the Israeli high-tech firms located in New York.
Guy Franklin, a senior auditor and consultant at the New York branch of Ernst & Young, is the brains behind the new project, claiming his inspiration came from other such mapping services Mapped in Israel and Made in NY, the original mapping trendsetter which came out in May of last year. Franklin had worked with the former for a short period of time.
Immediately following its launch, tech wunderkid Ben Lang came out with Mapped in Israel, which pinpoints every Israeli startup - the country currently boasts approximately 4,800 - in the country.
Both Mapped in Israel and Made in NY became popular instantaneously, and Franklin hopes IsraeliMappedinNY will follow in their success.
IsraeliMappedinNY “converges New York startups that were either founded by Israeli entrepreneurs or are present in Israel,” read an official statement from Franklin. “Through this site, the Israeli startup community can stay connected.”
