The MetroHartford Alliance and the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford have announced the third annual Connecticut-Israel Technology Summit on June 12 at The Oakdale Theater in Wallingford.

There are currently 20 community leaders, businesses, and institutions slated to participate, including Hartford Hospital, Gartner, Briefcam, The Hartford, United Technologies Corporation, the University of Connecticut, the Department of Economic and Community Development, and the Binational Industrial Research and Development Foundation.

“The Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford’s goal is to create an atmosphere in which any businessperson can learn from and experience what Israel has to offer companies in our area,” said Laura Zimmerman, Vice President of Jewish Public Affairs for Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford said in a press release. “Even in a high-tech industry, it is the people-to-people connections and the cultural understanding of each other that ensure future success.”

The conference, which begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m., will focus on building partnerships between Israeli companies and Connecticut. The organizers’ goal is to encourage Israeli companies to locate their U.S. offices in Connecticut and to assist existing businesses in the state in partnering with Israeli technology companies. A portion of the June 12 summit will be devoted to group roundtable discussions and other networking opportunities. Four companies will be recognized for successfully forming partnerships.

Tickets are $72 per person and include a Kosher buffet luncheon. Registration information can be found on the MetroHartford Alliance’s website.
