Top UK retail executives sharing their knowledge with the Israeli scene

Retail delegation

We had the privilege to host in partnership with Athito a group of top executives from TopshopMarks & SpencerPentland and New Look in Israel, on an immersive visit exploring the local startup scene and sharing knowledge with Israel’s top retailers on the future of the industry.

Our guests from the UK’s leading retailers started off with an introduction to Israeli startup SuperSmart, including a demonstration of their tech in a large supermarket.

From there our group went to Jerusalem to meet JVP Media, hear pitches from startups and meet young entrepreneurs at an open meetup session.

The next day saw a fascinating roundtable discussion at IDC Herzliya between the UK executives and their counterparts in the Israeli retail scene, from leading companies such as Terminal X, Big+, Shilav and Paz. This was followed by meeting more Israeli startups at the offices of Vintage Capital.
