About

Following the success of our previous US and London conferences, Calcalist is forging ahead with its international conference series, in which it places the spotlight on the world’s financial hubs currently at the center of global attention. Our first destination for 2018 is New York - the world’s most important metropolis, with paramount influence on global media, finance, politics and culture.
Mind the Tech NY 2018, in partnership with Bank Leumi, is scheduled for March 12-14. It will include a series of unique encounters and discussions on topics focusing on business ties with Israel, investment opportunities and more. During the conference, we shall examine the ways in which high-tech and innovation are manifest in an array of fields, from finance, real estate and marketing to sport, fashion, music and art. Throughout the event, participants will have the opportunity to meet some of the most influential people and companies, opinion makers and trendsetters in NY and the world.
We expect some 500 participants; amongst them are business leaders from Israel and the US, entrepreneurs, VC fund managers, startup CEOs and businessmen.
