GAM Meeting 2014

A Place for Top Accelerators Around the World

SAVE THE DATE: April 7th to April 10th

The GAM Meeting in 2014 will bring together accelerators from around the world to connect, network and learn from one another at the Microsoft Ventures accelerator in Tel Aviv, Israel.


The Global Accelerator Network and Microsoft Ventures will be leading discussions pertinent to accelerators, investors and startups with presentations and discussions moderated by accelerator experts. Attendees can expect to learn, be inspired and dialogue with other influential members of the accelerator startup community as we seek ways to cooperate, collaborate and elevate accelerators.


The conference will kick off on April 7th at the largest local annual tech event – ThinkNext – and will close with a full day sightseeing tour on April 10th. As in previous years, the conference organizers are providing an ‘All Included’ experience as full board, accommodation and transportation will be provided for your entire stay.
