We would like to inform you that the Office of the Chief Scientist of the Israeli Ministry of Economy (OCS) has published new tenders for four franchises to form and operate government-supported technological incubators.
Each franchise is for an incubator in a certain district: Tel Aviv (two franchises), Jerusalem (one franchise) and Judea and Samaria (one franchise). The tenders for the franchises in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are expected to be highly competitive.
Deadline for submitting a bid proposal is December 21, 2015. This provides only a reasonable time to prepare a bid proposal which requires, inter alia, finding a partner for a joint proposal (preference is given to bidders that are comprised of more than one party), recruiting the incubator's management team, preparation of investment and business plans, presentation of a budget and financial resources and locating office space.
