“Israel-based Trendlines Group’s medical technology incubator on Tuesday night was named the best incubator in Israel by the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS). Two Trendlines portfolio companies — MitrAssist, a company in the medtech incubator, and Advanced Mem-Tech, a member of the Trendlines Agriculture Technology incubator — were named best start-ups of the year by the OCS.

“’The entire Trendlines organization is thrilled about our awards from the Office of the Chief Scientist,’ said Dollinger. ‘We are proud of Eran Feldhay, CEO of Trendlines Medical, and his team for their recognition of excellence as they develop and nurture life science technologies in the medical device arena.'”

“Commenting on the awards, Steve Rhodes, Trendlines co-CEO and director of Trendlines Agtech, said that the awards “confirm our business model and hands-on approach to support and develop companies that reach this level of accomplishment. Our team in Trendlines Agtech, led by CEO Nitza Kardish, continues to establish companies focused on agritech and food, especially those that produce more using fewer resources, to achieve outstanding results.”

“Most investment funds that sponsor incubators work with start-ups in fields such as mobile app, information technology and cloud development. Trendlines specializes in start-ups in the life sciences and medical tech, especially medical devices, and agricultural tech fields. The latter is especially intriguing area of activity; Trendlines is the only Israeli incubator in the agritech field, an area that Rurik Halaby expects to be the next big thing in Israeli technology. ‘Gram for gram, Israel is as productive as any nation, and considering the limitations it must work within. It is impressive and amazing,’ Halaby said, CEO of New York-based AgriCapital, one of the largest mergers and acquisition firms working in the agritech space.”
