What is the Tech Shuk?
Shuk means market in Hebrew, and it’s the perfect word to describe our event. We create a marketplace of startups to highlight interesting and innovative Canadian and Israeli entrepreneurs! Tech Shuk provides a social and professional networking event for young professionals in the city.
With your support, we’d like to make fundraising history with JNF Future’s Tech Shuk! Our goal is to accommodate an impressive number of startups and attendees, and to raise awareness for the Israeli and Canadian startup ecosystems while at the same time raising vital funds for mental illness treatment and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
This year, all Proceeds from Tech Shuk will go towards Herzog Hospital’s new cutting edge PTSD wing in Jerusalem which will house medical services focusing on psychological trauma and other mental health issues for children and adults.
Herzog is a leading institution in helping Israelis from all walks of life cope with the terrorist attacks, military operations, as well as domestic and school violence. It has become a key resource for assisting those who have been impacted by the terrorism of the Intifada, the daily barrage of kassam rockets, the Second Lebanon War and recent operations in Gaza.
The Center has developed a wealth of crucial programs as a result of the need for trauma related services.
This facility will be the first of its kind in Israel and will serve as a model of excellence for other health care centres throughout Israel.
JNF Future is the gateway for the next generation to Jewish National Fund, Israel’s primary resource for development, innovation and progress. JNF Future engages and energizes young leaders between the ages of 25 to 45 who are committed to innovation, environmentalism and community development in Israel. We are particularly interested in the exciting development of Israel’s start-up and tech space and how it contributes to infrastructure and agricultural development in Israel and around the world. JNF Future recognizes that Canada is a start-up hub and its entrepreneurs and young professionals are key players in the global marketplace.
