Experience Innovation

A virtual showcase created by the MIBA where up to 5 Israeli companies pitch innovative technologies to Michigan companies. This is a new concept that we originated in 2021. We have found this to be a great way to showcase many Israeli companies and have created over 100 connections. See our event page for upcoming Experience Innovation webinars.
