And the winner is...
After an intense night of pitching, the judges have deliberated and decided on the 3 winning startups.
In first place we have Matricelf, a startup that has developed a technology that enables the production of autologous engineered tissue composed of matrix and cells derived from patients’ omental biopsies - in orther words, that will cure people with spinal cord injury.
The CEO of Matricelf, Asaf Toker, will fly to the final in SF this coming November to represent Israel and compete for the grand prize of 1 million dollars!!

Congratulations and thank you to the startups that participated. It was an honor to hear about your disruptive technologies. In our eyes, you are all winners.
