+Levi Shapiro gives us a glimpse of the future of mHealth…

Today I joined 12 very smart people at the law offices of Greenberg Traurig in Tel Aviv where we heard pitches from 16 startup companies who made it to the semi-finals where we served as judges for the upcoming mHealth Israel Conference on February 18.

Levi Shapiro manages to bring in healthcare experts and professionals from all over the world for these events. I have been to many of them, and I have to tell you that they are really first rate.
I go not so much because I am some healthcare expert. I go because it gives me glimpse of the future.

Like everything that is imagined here, they need global markets, because Israel is a tiny domestic market.

The flip side to this is that when you are creating for healthcare, you are doing this to advance humanity.

Sure, there is a business side to all this, but several of the companies we saw today were created from a personal experience or having lost a friend or family member to something that could have been avoided.

If you save or improve one life, you can often find millions of others with similar issues or circumstances.

So be it in Israel, the U.S., the U.K., or China, it’s just a matter of serving and helping millions or billions of people.

Levi’s next event is the mHealth Conference on February 18.
There’s a full week of events all over the country that are taking place before the conference.

And he’s bringing a wonderful group of speakers, scheduling some wonderful one on one meetings, and lots more.

While not every company who pitched today will be in the final round, the ones who do make it, will not only amaze you, but give you a glimpse of the future. Levi is really good at this and has built a very good community in the process of doing these events over and over and over.

Be it for personal reasons, business reasons, or if you have an interest in getting sneak peak at the future, invest February 18 in you, your organization, or whatever will help you, help others in advancing mHealth, and our world at large.

Yeah, it’s that big.

This coming Tuesday, December 15, 150 selected startups in Israel are going to be hopping on board a train to pitch to a group of VCs and corporate sponsors who are looking at innovation and where this innovation could add value to their businesses, now and into the future.

Yes, it's the ‪#‎MoneyTrainIL‬

I've written this guide to help everyone in Israel and for that matter, around the world, to contribute their collective voice to cheer on the teams. And if you are one of the startups on the train, be sure to shout out to the other teams, and the wonderful sponsors.

If your startup is entering its next phase of growth, and you have not discovered the +Rackspace Manged Cloud, I inivte you to watch and learn about what we do, how we do it, and the big difference in terms of support, launch assitance, 24 x 7 cloud engineers, management, and security.

While my focus has been in Israel, I have also been engaging with startups and onboarding new customers in Germany, Czech Republic, Jordan, Gaza, Palestine,Ukraine, Poland, and most recently, Greece, where I am posting this from.

Everywhere I go, no matter who I speak to, the most common theme I hear is one of delight and surprise that going beyond the traditional marketing slogans that pervade our world, the teams I get to and honored to work with, who actually deliver above and beyond what we say we are going to do.

You really do get Fanatical Support, and you can only get that from Rackspace.

Let us manage your cloud, so you don't have to, and so you can focus on running and growing your startup.

As 2016 approaches, email me: alan at weinkrantz dot com and let me know how I can ‪#‎BeHelpful‬ to you.

+Orli Yakuel gave me permission to re-publish her Facebook post in my column in "The Times of Israel," so that readers outside of Israel could learn about these incredbily awesome women who are doing amazing things in the startup and innovation ecosystem.

Thank you Orli for these pearls of wisdom, who, as a strand make up an incredible group of inspiring and very strong women we can all learn from, and be inspired by.

While the list is by no means complete, it's illustrative of the talent, smarts, and drive that comes from this magical place....
