City as Design Partner
Collaborate with the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality, to help you validate market need, product features and business model, for you to make the necessary tweaks and get ready for commercialization.
University Academic Support
Conduct a joint research with Tel Aviv University, Israel's largest academic institution, and a global leader in innovation, known for the number of VC backed startups founded by its alumni.
Real Life Urban Sandbox
Tel Aviv Yafo's official sandbox, allows you to test and showcase your technology in a real life urban environment, and access the real-time municipal data you need.
CityZone is an in-residence program, meaning that in order for startups to benefit from the living lab, municipal data, mentoring or support, they need to physically be here. And to make the relocation easier, we offer a reduction of 50% in rent for the duration of the program.
At CityZone, we are very much focused on helping our entrepreneurs grow through our extensive network with other cities and corporate partners all over the world, to jumpstart their internationalization and access to global markets.
CityZone is an early stage program, thus providing extensive know how, guidance and advice from other entrepreneurs, consultants and experts, that help pave the way for product market fit and commercializtion.
CityZone is by far the best way to navigate through the complexities of local governments, and get your foot in the door. The program opened the doors for us to prove our value to Tel Aviv-Yafo and other cities globally. I am certain that without CityZone, it would have taken us years to get to where we are today.
