Edtech UK was delighted to be a leading partner in a high profile Mayor of London trade mission visit to Israel from 9-12 November 2015 with a range of top edtech startups including founding members Gojimo Proversity & RefME, with partners: London & Partners, London Chamber of Commerce and the GLA.

The tech mission was headed up by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson as part of a wider visit to Israel with the aim of increasing trade links with London, including visits to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, MINDCET, Google Campus and the Silicon Boulevard.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson MP said: “This trade mission is a fantastic chance to promote London as a thriving tech city and an opportunity to encourage lasting partnerships with some of Israel’s most innovative and creative minds. I want to shine a light on London’s home grown tech talent and strengthen our ties with this part of the world.”

Ian Fordham, CEO Edtech UK, said: “Its a great pleasure to have lead the edtech delegation on this high profile visit to Israel. The UK is home to some of the world’s leading schools, colleges, universities and education businesses and the companies accompanying the Mayor on this trip are proof of the UK and London’s strength in this fast growing sector. We are keen to help support companies grow and build more strategic links between two of the world’s top edtech ecosystems”
