Joining the first four Israeli companies, BetterCare, ECOncrete, Nucleon, and UC-Care, FIBA rounds out the 2nd cohort for the 2018 program. With companies offering digital security, wearables, retail inventory management, and predictive analytics technologies, these four companies bring a lot to the table. GlobeKeeper developed an encrypted communication platform centered around an intuitive collaboration interface to create a secure, end-to-end solution that keeps security personnel safe, reduces costs, and enhances decision making capabilities, using standard equipment. “We are excited to bring GlobeKeeper to Tampa at a time when safety and security is such a hot topic. We trust the GlobeKeeper platform can bring real value to first responders at the government and commercial level.” said Rachel Marks Feinman, Executive Director of FIBA. Say created a dynamic wearable display controlled by a smartphone that can be incorporated into clothing and accessories. It allows consumers to express themselves, brands to engage with their fans in a new way and event organizers to deliver a synchronized live content experience. “As we opened our round A, we are thrilled to collaborate with the FIBA team and to be exposed to the Tampa community as we believe it can help us raise the funds needed to bring our innovation and life-saving cause to the US market.” Said Shaked Lev, CEO. Leveraging state of the art human predictive analytics, Intervyo is the first and most advanced interview simulation engine in the world, capable of screening candidates, and accurately predicting their suitability for the job. “Intervyo brings the hottest technology to the FIBA program – virtual reality and human predictive analytics. We can’t wait to start working with them and introduce them to Florida corporations” said Rachel Marks Feinman, Executive Director of FIBA. WiseShelf transforms existing shelves into a dynamic inventory management solution for retailers. Using low cost hardware and a sophisticated software, WiseShelf helps stores to manage inventory and fulfill online orders. “WiseShelf is happy to join FIBA . We look forward to collaborating with the FIBA team in aspects of business development and adaptation of the business model to the US market. We also want our Florida customers to feel we are local.” Said Shalom Nakdimon, CEO. FIBA is excited to add these four innovators to their 2018 program. The technology that each of these companies brings to the U.S. is exciting and groundbreaking. Each organization has the ability to truly change the face of their industry. The founders of GlobeKeeper, Say and WiseShelf will be in Tampa in May to learn about the US market, identify opportunities and start building their network of partners, mentors and customers. They will return in June for the 2nd Annual Innovation Fusion event. The FIBA team is building teams and committees around the visiting entrepreneurs and the support of the community is instrumental in helping them grow their network in Tampa Bay and consider making Tampa their base for their US operation.
