Tel Aviv Landing Pad

The Australian Landing Pad at SOSA, Tel Aviv

The Tel Aviv Landing Pad is located at South of Salame (SOSA). Founded in 2013 by 25 leading Israeli investors and high-tech entrepreneurs, SOSA brings together startups, entrepreneurs, corporations and investors – all under one roof. This exclusive global network bridges the gap between the supply and demand of corporate innovation. With SOSA’s unique multi-pronged approach to innovation, corporations, investors, and startups in traditionally separate industries interact in new ways. 

Occupying four stories of a vintage industrial building in South Tel Aviv, SOSA offers its members a uniquely crafted space, designed to promote interaction, creativity and collaboration. 

Tel Aviv is a mature startup ecosystem with many Founders establishing multiple enterprises. Learn more about the different players in the Tel Aviv ecosystem (PDF 145.6KB)

“SOSA is run by a very talented team of entrepreneurs that strive to provide ongoing value to their members. Whether it's through specific events, or just spending time working in SOSA's shared space, we are able to meet, work and socialise with the best people from the entire startup community – from entrepreneurs to investors to service providers.”
