by Ifi Reporter Category:Government Jul 5, 2018

Six Israeli start-ups, presenting innovative technologies in the areas of health, agriculture and water, have reached the final stage of the ibridge to the innovation program of Israel-India, launched during the mutual visits of Indian and Israeliprime ministers over the past year. The six companies were selected from 18 Israeli companies that presented their technologies to Israeli and Indian company directors and investors at the Demo-Day event last week at the Urban Place in Shalom Tower in Tel Aviv.

The event was also attended by representatives of the Indian Invest India Investment Authority and the guest speaker was Rotesh Mal, chairman of EM3 Agriservices, known in India as the "Over Farmers". The company leases equipment to farmers on a time or area basis, thus saving expensive equipment and allowing access to innovative technologies at a low price.

The selected companies are -
In the field of agriculture:
Amaizz, which has developed a portable drying device that enables the dry storage of agricultural produce, is an issue of great importance in the Indian market, which has difficulty in transporting fresh agricultural produce.
Biofeed, which developed an anti-fly fruit plant that severely damages India's mango and other fruits. India is a major mango exporter in the world.
In the field of health:
Zabra Medical, which develops medical imaging technologies.
MobileODT, which developed medical devices to diagnose cervical cancer.
In the field of water:
Aquallence has developed a water treatment facility using ozone.
AMS Technologies has developed an industrial water filtration system.

As noted, the six companies were selected from the 18 companies that participated in the program after they were screened by an Indian jury, which has over 150 applications. These companies participated in a structured process that lasted for half a year and included training, workshops and access to information on the Indian market, along with professional visits on the ground, networking events, mentoring and B2B meetings with senior officials in the private and public sectors.

Eli Cohen, Minister of Economy and Industry, said: "Following the government's decision to invest NIS 240 million by 2020 in advancing relations with India in the areas of innovation and technology, the Israel-India Innovation Bridge program provides a golden opportunity for Israeli companies in the fields of health, cleantech and agritech, A global and disciplined global arena in the form of India. "
Dr. Ami Apelbaum, Chief Scientist at the Ministry of Economics and Industry and Chairman of the Innovation Authority: "The bridge program for Israeli-Indian innovation is a springboard for fruitful cooperation between Israeli innovation and Indian corporations. Known as "Start-Nation" for the development of technological solutions to various challenges, is highly synergetic and unique, and there is a genuine mutual desire, backed by considerable investment, in order to bring these collaborations to the pilot stage of Israeli technologies in India and help them meet the most important global challenges in general and in India in particular. "

Avi Lubton, Director of the Asia Pacific Desk at the Innovation Authority, emphasized that the "Bridge to Innovation" program came into being during a peak period in India-Israel relations, which began more than a year ago and was strengthened by reciprocal visits by prime ministers, reflecting an era in which many new opportunities open up to the Indian market.
