Every one of us knows someone who is struggling with a brain related illness: Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Autism, dementia, depression, brain tumors and many more.
Doctors around the world have unmet needs, for devices and medicines that could potentially turn the lives of their patients around, and even save them.
In parallel, there are innovators and researchers that have brilliant ideas for developing breakthrough technologies in the brain arena. And there are entrepreneurs, looking for a breakthrough product in BrainTech.
Sometimes the most important thing we can do is bring all these people together, so that they can communicate and synchronize the medical needs, the ideas and the business platforms together.
In 2010 Israel’s President Shimon Peres envisioned creating a brain technology hub in Israel. Israel Brain Technologies (IBT) is his brainchild – a non-profit organization which mission is to bring doctors, innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs and investors in the BrainTech arena together, so that patients will get access to new treatments, faster.
IBT works out of Israel, which is ideally positioned to be a leading BrainTech hub. Israel’s skilled workforce and entrepreneurial spirit has already made it a global leader in hi-tech, water technology and medical devices. IBT brings together the leading minds in Israel, and from around the world, for the benefit of patients.
