Commtouch is a proud sponsor of BizTec, an entrepreneurship competition organized by the Haifa Technion for university and college students (undergrad & graduate) from all over Israel. It is a yearlong competition for students to build startups in various areas such as SW, HW, Bio-tech, etc., designed to ultimately produce the nation’s next generation of successful ventures. This year is the 5th annual competition, and from previous years, nine “real” start-ups were born as result of Biztec.
Earlier this week, Commtouch’s CTO Amir Lev represented Commtouch in the opening ceremony for BizTEC 2010. Commtouch executives will also be involved in mentoring the BizTEC contestants throughout the year in various business-related subjects, and in judging the competition.
The 2010 prize will be in honor of Nahum and Nava Sharfman, who died in a tragic airplane accident earlier this year; Nahum was a co-founder of Commtouch.
