MassChallenge Israel Announces 2018 Class
March 28 , 2018
EqualWeb is one of the 55 startups chosen from 500 to participate in the MassChallenge JERUSALEM - MassChallenge, a global network of zero-equity startup accelerators, today announced that 55 of the world’s highest impact, highest potential early-stage startups will join its 2018 program in Israel. The selected startups work across a range of industries – including medtech, future mobility, visual technology, and medtech – and 33% of the cohort comes from countries outside of Israel including India, US, Poland, and Kenya.
MassChallenge Israel also announced that Yonit Golub Serkin has been named Managing Director, and that Israel Ganot will serve as Executive Director. Serkin has served as Director of Partnerships of MassChallenge Israel since 2016. Prior to joining MassChallenge Israel, Serkin was on the founding teams of both Amelia Investments and Moonscape Ventures, and she served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Economic Development under New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“Jerusalem has become a center for global innovation, and there is no better illustration of this than the nearly 170 teams from outside of Israel that applied to accelerate with MassChallenge Israel,” said Serkin. “With our third cohort, we are thrilled to connect the world’s startups to the Israel innovation ecosystem and to connect Israeli innovators to our global network.”
More than 520 startups from 32 coutnries applied to join MassChallenge Israel’s 2018 class. Startups were evaluated on their ability to demonstrate impact and potential – for ideas ranging from scientific breakthroughs to industry disruptions – by an expert judging panel that included more than 170 of the world`s top executives, entrepreneurs, and investors.
The 55 startups will participate in MassChallenge’s nearly four-month accelerator program, where they will receive world-class mentoring from industry experts, tailored programming, free co-working space, and unrivalled access to corporate partners. The accelerator will run from late April through early August 2018 and culminates with the MassChallenge Israel Awards, where the accelerator’s top startups will be invited to the MassChallenge Israel Trek, an all -expenses paid curated roadshow to the East Coast of the US. Select startups will share a portion of an equity-free cash prize of 500K ILS.
In preparation for the release of WCAG 2.2 in December 2022, EqualWeb has already updated its web accessibility technology to meet the new guidelines, ensuring its clients are ready in advance for future requirements and regulations.
Web accessibility certification is used for internal legal purposes to expound on the remediation process the website has undergone.
In a web accessibility certificate, also known as a certificate of performance, you will receive verification of the standards the website was remediated against, a list of the accessibility modifications that the web accessibility solution provider performed on the website, and the accessibility functions that exist on the website and may be used by visitors.
Note: a web accessibility certification should not be confused with an accessibility statement, which is required to feature on a website in accordance with the law. While similar, the accessibility statement is more of a general summary of the accessibility enhancements that feature on the website, although there are some functions that overlap between the two.
