We put the right people together, and let them make the magic happen

The best way to find answers is to ask good questions

**I'm an Israeli founder coming to Silicon Valley to meet investors, can you help me?**

 

While we don’t make direct connections to investors, we provide our members with a supportive community and environment. We host intimate, member-only events to facilitate connections between entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate executives, leaving the networking up to you. Additionally, we offer a shared working space with 24/7 access, including reservable meeting rooms. If your visit coincides with one of our events, you're welcome to register and attend.

 

 

**Can I pitch you my startup/idea?**

 

The ICON team does not conduct 1:1 meetings with startups. Instead, we offer various programs, including office hours with investors, successful entrepreneurs, and corporate executives, providing an excellent opportunity to pitch and receive feedback on your startup.

 

 

**What’s your added value? Why can't I meet these investors myself?**

 

Meeting investors without an introduction or a trusted referral is incredibly challenging. ICON’s community includes a wide range of investors whom you can meet through our programs and events, such as 1:1 office hours, talks, and fireside chats.

 

 

**Do you require a membership fee?**

 

No. ICON membership is free of charge.

 

 

**Why was my membership denied?**

 

ICON membership is exclusively for Israeli founders of technology startups, investors (VC partners or prominent angels), and corporate executives (typically director level and above).

 

 

**Do you invest in startups?**

 

No. As a non-profit, we do not invest in startups, nor do we take equity or fees for any of our programs.
