Mobile Monday Tel Aviv is here!

Great news everyone! The Israeli chapter of Mobile Monday is forming these days. Mobile Monday is a global non profit organization that helps bring together mobile professionals around the world through monthly gatherings and other activities.

Israel has a lot of promising mobile startups, and mobile innovation is one of the themes around here in recent years. However, there is no organized community for people engaged with the mobile space, and since Mobile Monday does just that around the world, it can happen here too.

Currently the Israeli chapter is forming, and we have plans to have the first event in May, and already have sponsors commited to it. The exact date will be announced though it will probably be the first Monday of the month, according to the Mobile Monday tradition...

Usually the events have a certain theme with some lectures by people from that field, a "launchpad" in which a few startups showcase their technologies and most importantly - networking in a nice atmosphere (bring your business cards...).

To stay in touch and receive updates, I recommend you to join the Mobile Monday Tel Aviv Facebook group and also invite other people that you think may be interested. Facebook is our platform of choice for events coordination, so join to get invited.

If you would like to speak about anything mobile in the upcoming events, or think your company may be interested in sponsoring an event please contact Ofir Leitner (via facebook). In addition we are building the core team these days, and though we already have several great people on the team, we can always use more, so if you want to help contact Ofir.

It is about time we have a mobile community in Israel... Mazal Tov to us all...
