The GISEP is is a non-monetary platform initiated by the German Startups Association and supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) to strengthen and foster the German-Israeli economic relations in the field of startups.


The GISEP hosts a range of events on internationalization and provides information beyond the vibrant startup hotspots of Berlin and Tel Aviv on the entirety of the respective ecosystem. Furthermore, the GISEP develops a Go-To-Market Guide to support the soft landing of globalising startups.


Within the GISEP, the German Startups Association acts as a neutral intermediary channelling the information flow between the Israeli and the German startup ecosystems. The GISEP is implemented with the support of honorary GISEP ambassadors and mentors in both countries.
