Tech It Forward, the Israel-based “innovation bridge maker,” was selected by Seed Group, the UAE company owned by the Royal Family of Dubai and the Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum, to be its Israel Country manager, providing Israeli startups opportunities for collaboration and investment in the UAE. It is no longer big news when a UAE firm invests in Israel, but it is newsworthy to note that in Tech it Forward, the religious Muslim nation has chosen to work with a firm founded and led by two women.
Founded in 2016 by Jessica Rosner and Jennifer Elias, Tech It Forward is the bridge between local entrepreneurs and startups and the people out there who have the money to invest – VC funds and angel investors. It acts as sort of a travel agency for business people looking to invest in Israel. The firm does all of the leg work in putting together the trips, conferences, networking events, pitching events, mentorship programs, and meetings, connecting international startups, large corporations, technology consultants, and private investors with Israel’s startup ecosystem.
Jennifer Elias told Jewish Business News, “We are extremely proud to represent Seed Group in Israel, and support Israeli startups be implemented, launched, and invested strategically there while supporting long term peace via economic development.”

As the Israel country manager for Seed Group, Tech it Forward will help scout the most relevant Israeli technologies and start-ups, and connect them to a whole new market and launchpad in the UAE, as well as to resources and investors abroad that will help to accelerate business growth. This connection will bridge the Israeli start-up ecosystem and the forward-thinking, tech-oriented economy of the UAE like never before. Seed Group will be the launchpad for this new venture, offering complete support to Israeli start-ups no matter what stage of development they are in.
The goal of Seed Group is to provide growing businesses with opportunities through collaborations and partnerships in the UAE. Since its inception, the company has closed many multi-million-dollar deals and has managed investments worth over a billion dollars. The Group provides assistance to companies at any stage of growth, guiding them towards success in the complex market of today. Another goal of Seed Group is moving towards a 100% digital future. Hence, many of the companies the Group mentors embody the concept through work, using ground-breaking ideas for public benefit.
