Seven NSW Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning startups have completed an intensive 10-day program in Israel as they aim to take their products and services to a global market.

The startups gained valuable advice from global innovation experts while attending the program, hosted by Austrade’s Israel Landing Pad in Tel Aviv.

“Tel Aviv has one of the highest startup densities in the world – an impressive array of foreign investors and venture capitalists, with broad specialist knowledge in cyber security and IT infrastructure,” said Trade Minister Steven Ciobo.

“These startups will be making incredibly valuable connections as they strive to take their products and services to a global market,” he said.

“The Turnbull Coalition Government’s Landing Pad program is designed to assist Australian entrepreneurs in converting their ideas into successful enterprises.”

Competitive process

NSW Minister for Innovation Matt Kean said the competitive application process found a diverse selection of startups with innovative business solutions.

“These companies are the best in the business,” Mr Kean said. “They are creating ground-breaking products and services that are reshaping the landscape of the modern-day workforce.”

The selected startups have developed a range of solutions to business problems.

“One company heading to Israel is FluroSat, an impressive business that uses remote sensing drones to help farmers track poor crop development, trace the cause, and find solutions,” Mr Kean said.

“Another is Daisee’s Linguistic Interpretive Semantic Analysis (LISA), a program that records and analyses customer calls, and creates insights and learnings from the interactions.

“I’m so proud to see our home-grown talent getting the opportunity to learn from the world’s best innovators.”

This is the third year the NSW Government has partnered with Austrade’s Landing Pad program.
