OPTIN's Private Technology Reports
For Dutch Companies or foreign companies provides private technology reports of Israeli projects and companies.




OPTIN's private technology report is a market survey of all Israeli projects in a particular field. The survey includes very early stage projects, higher University level, institutes, incubators, start-ups and companies active in that field. The technology surveyed is a private request made by the foreign company. Using OPTIN you can save much time and money in order to find the newest technologies needed to give your company the cutting edge for tomorrow.

Israel has achieved the status of an international power in many high tech fields. This international fame is based on her high rate of Research and Development investment per GDP and a highly skilled work force. Israel has one of the largest centers in the world for start-up enterprises. Israel's technological incubator program has generated many new technologies and innovations. Currently, there are 23 operating technological incubators, 200 active projects, 735 graduated projects and private investment for 54 percent of these projects. Every year many new ideas are turned into business opportunities. From university to incubator to company the discoveries are quickly turned from business opportunities to new high-tech ventures and eventually to full-fledged companies. In this fast and changing world it is no longer the idea that counts but rather quick identification of the most promising successful project and the right acquisition or co-operative venture to achieve the fastest speed to the market. OPTIN�s Private Technology Reports aim to make Israel's technologies more accessible to foreign companies and investors so that quick identification of the most promising projects becomes possible.


Optin's Technology Report is the only one of its kind which includes early stage projects and companies together. In most company searches only the companies will be presented and not technologies at early stage level. Optin�s report is a survey of the technology itself, who is who in a particular field and what are they doing and are there new ideas which can be beneficial for your company?

  • Optin's Technology report is shaped according to the request of the customer.
  • You will receive ALL CONTACT INFORMATION of all the projects. Giving you direct access to contact the projects and/or companies of interest by yourself and not forcing you to continue with a intermediary or consultant.
  • If you do not have time to follow up on the projects presented in the first report a second stage is made available which allows you to receive extra information about the projects without any further commitment.
  • The report is confidential and your interests will not be passed on to other companies.
  • You will have access to OPTIN�s vast network in Israel.
  • You save time and money by allowing OPTIN to do the search for you. Since OPTIN is a non-profit organization its prices are much more reasonable than most companies. OPTIN's time costs less than your time.

OPTIN's experience in making technology reports:

OPTIN is a non-profit organization that promotes new technologies and developments and focuses on bringing to light new business opportunities in Israel, the Netherlands and worldwide. This is done to stimulate bilateral co-operation, new ventures, investments, and strategic alliances. OPTIN aims is to stimulate co-operation by promoting joint R&D ventures, business ventures, and scientific collaboration for both companies and institutions. OPTIN does this by distributing information, organizing events and personally helping companies, universities and institutes and by creation of the necessary indispensable mutual trust. Optin is partly funded by the Israeli Industry Center for R&D (Matimop) and partly by Dutch investors to insure the promotion of Israeli Technologies.
Throughout its 14 year experience with the Israeli market OPTIN has built up many important contacts with all universities, technology transfer companies, incubators and governmental agencies. In the last 5 years OPTIN has devoted much of its time in developing a survey technique which allows it to get a survey of all technologies in Israel available in a certain field within a limited amount of time. (For samples of such survey see the OPTIN bulletins and Genomics in Israel CD-Roms). The OPTIN, Genomics in Israel database, has been advertised in the Jerusalem Post (Israel's number one English newspaper) as the best survey of the market available. OPTIN's speciality in surveying the Israeli market is unique in that it is the only survey available to include very early stage projects at the highest university level, institutes, start-ups and companies. It is in general a survey of a technology including everything that is happening in Israel in that particular field. These searches can be done privately for companies as well as for researchers.

Format of the Private Technology Report
After searching the above described institutions and companies we will collect all the projects into one document. Each project will have a title describing their core business and a 12 sentence paragraph, including their contact details. On the first page of the document all titles will be collected and a link will be made to the description of the project below. In this way you can have and easy overview of all the Projects and will be able to read through the many titels in just a short amount of time.
The report will include all available projects and technologies in Israel in your field. You will receive this document in a written file as well as a digital version.


OPTIN assures confidentiality for the contents of the technology reports made for your company. The search for projects can either be done in your name or you can choose to do the search confidential. In this way the Israeli companies will not know for which companies they are sending the projects.
