Early Adopter Program
The Early Adopter Matching Program (ALT: US-Israel Adopter program) matches Israeli pre-Series A US bound companies with highly experienced exectives who offer regional guidance. The program is launching in Q4.
The main outcome of this program should be that Israeli companies are guided through a new ecosystem and market in order to meet partners with whom they could start testing assumptions and rounding out research through pilots. We refer to this as customer discovery.
We hope that through this customer discovery work, companies are introduced to a future business partner.
Matches are made by the program manager based on your application profile.
We cannot promise an expert in your specific field, but all adopters are experts in business, tech development, and the ecosystem in our region. They are leaders and senior executives in their field.
Companies and adopters are encouraged to meet monthly for an initial 4 month term after which a rematch is possible.
Adopters must become annual members of the PICC at the $300 level or higher.
Companies will be considered full quarterly members of the PICC at a reduced cost of $200 quarterly. Instructions for signup will be sent with your acceptance.
