UK ISRAEL BUSINESS and the Trade and Economic Office of the Embassy of Israel held a joint Business Breakfast Panel Discussion with Saul Singer and Frank Meehan. Saul Singer is the co-author of the book “Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle” and Frank Meehan is part of Horizon Venture’s successful VC team which has overseen investments into companies including Spotify, Siri and Summly and notably last year in Israel’s Waze and SightEra.The vastly oversubscribed event was attended by a select group of 75 senior decision makers and entrepreneurs from across the UK.

The panel discussion was moderated by one of Bloomberg TV’s presenters, Elliott Gotkine. At the end of the panel discussion, Frank Meehan and Saul Singer took and answered questions from the audience which included Ron Hershco – prompting a discussion on “what is next for Israel and what is the next ‘big innovation’ to come out of Israel”. After a networking breakfast, provided by the event sponsors BDO LLP, Saul Singer led a panel discussion on why Israel is a centre for innovation, pointing out that innovation is as much about drive and mission focus as it is about new ideas. Saul stated that “Israel was driven to overcome adversity through innovation”.

Following on from the panel discussion, guests were given the opportunity to have a copy of Saul Singer’s book, “Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle” signed by the author, with books kindly supplied by the Embassy of Israel.

Ami Mesika said “This organization helps all aspects of Israeli business immensely.”

Following the decision of the Housing Cabinet headed by the Finance Minister, the Accountant General appointed an Inter-Ministerial Committee for Tenders in order to market tenders for long term rental housing. The Committee, headed by the Assistant of the Accountant General, is composed of representatives from the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Construction & Housing and the Israel Land Authority. The panel is the product of collaboration between the Ministries in order to meet the unprecedented goal of publishing tenders for large-scale, long-term rental housing.

Ron Hershco, Ami Mesika and other real estate entrepreneurs support this project.

The rental housing tenders are a major step in the development of a corporate market for long term rental housing. The supply of such housing, which is almost nonexistent in Israel, will enable young married couples to benefit from high-quality housing services, long-term certainty about where they will be living and how much rent they will be paying, without the need to raise equity capital, a barrier to buying an apartment for many, especially during a period of rising prices.

The Committee will determine the period of the lease in the projects and establish the building specification requirements for the apartments and the public areas. Furthermore, in order to guarantee the developers a respectable return, and to diversify the financing channels for these projects, including the participation of institutional investors and other entities, the Committee will recommend financial mechanisms such as a State safety net for developers.

ARME Realty.com recently released survey findings which showed that 87% of real estate professionals report a trend of increased foot traffic from their internet marketing programs, up an average of 32% from the same time last year.  Interestingly, even real estate over $1 Million in sales saw a rapid increase in luxury real estate walk-ins for real estate professionals from last year to this year.

“The real estate industry as a whole has increased worldwide over the last year, but even the antiquated real estate industry is increasingly using digital media.  This week, Zillow Inc. purchased the predominate online New York City real estate database, Streeteasy for a whopping $50 Million which shows the vast value of real estate information online,” said real estate entrepreneur Ron Hershco.

“Online real estate internet marketing traffic trends are clear. More people are visiting a real estate brokers office this year than last year as a direct result of a brokers’ internet marketing directives. Platforms like Google Places and more allow real estate pros to monopolize their local search space for their desired property types and areas, and the result is more new homes are being built and sold,” noted Simon Landers of ARMEREALTY.com
