Prime Minister Netanyahu cuts virtual ribbon at multinational technology giant's new hub for entrepreneurs in heart of Israeli metropolis.
The Campus stretches over an entire floor in central Tel Aviv's Electra Tower under the multinational technology giant's new Israel office, which takes up seven floors.
The Campus stretches over 1,500 square meters (16,145 square feet) and includes an area for events that will serve as a meeting and workshop place for the startup community.
Google officials said they had met with most members of the Israeli high-tech industry, including entrepreneurs and startup companies, and realized that they were short of a physical space which could be used as a platform for meetings between the entrepreneurs.
Along with the Campus, Google launched a website called campustelaviv.com, where entrepreneurs can find information on the Campus activities and reserve the place for events – free of charge.
The Campus will also provide direct access to Google teams and other industry experts and provide a device lab which includes tablets, smartphones and other devices for the purpose of checking and matching applications.
In addition, Google is introducing the Launchpad – a two-week boot camp for early stage startups. The program is held in collaboration with different partners, including incubators, technological hubs and educational institutions.
