Welcome to Schnader’s Israel – Pittsburgh Tech Report

On July 8, 2013 by Schnader in News

Our goal is to raise awareness of the technology ecosystem in both communities and to create a space where entrepreneurs can “meet,” exchange ideas and even plant the seeds of future collaboration.

I lived and practiced law in Israel for more than seven years. I was part of the Start Up Nation before it ever received that name. Prior to living in Israel, I spent several years working on a number of sophisticated Israeli research and development projects.

I have been living in Pittsburgh for nearly 11 years. As a practitioner and teacher of law and entrepreneurship in this region, I am proud to be part of the continuing renaissance of the city’s technology ecosystem.

Every day I am amazed to see the ideas, science and products being created in Israel and Pittsburgh. As I work with Israeli companies doing business in the United States and with local entrepreneurs, I see the similarities between the technology ecosystems in both regions. While no one will ever confuse winter along the Mediterranean shore with winter in Southwestern Pennsylvania, the brainpower, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit coming out of Pittsburgh and Israel are striking, and I am constantly looking for ways to bring them together.

This is the intention of Schnader’s Pittsburgh-Israel Business Report. We want to generate interest and collaboration between the two communities. We want to make people in Pittsburgh aware of the cutting edge developments coming out of Israel in software, IT, medical devices and life sciences and connect them to institutions like the Weizmann Institute, The Technion, and companies that have been supported by the Office of the Chief Scientist. We want to make people in Israel aware of the technologies being developed by companies at the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse, Innovation Works, Idea Foundry, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and many other places.

Stay tuned, we will have more about recent events bringing Israelis and Israeli technology to Pittsburgh.
