TechAviv, a global organization that brings together Israeli hi-tech founders and investors, held its final event for 2010 in Herzliyya last night. The event began with Michael Eisenberg of Benchmark Capital discussing his Hummus Manifesto – the problems facing Israeli success in the Internet industry and some solutions. Following the presentation, he and six other VCs took seats on stage and participated in an open discussion with the 200+ members in the audience on everything from grievances with VC funding and finding funding in general to problems with product design and solutions for all of these.
Here is a video of the VCs giving their predictions for 2011 at the end of the event:
The full panel was made up of Eisenberg, Scott Tobin of Battery Ventures, Adam Fisher of Bessemer, Noga Kap of BRM, Adi Pundak-Mintz of Gemini Israel Funds, Avi Zeevi of Carmel Ventures, and Yoram Snir of Greylock Partners.
