Betalin Therapeutics strives to cure diabetes by a single transplant of its proprietary Engineered Micro Pancreas (EMP), that provides significant levels of glucose-regulated insulin secretion over extended periods of time. The company was established in 2015, based on technology developed at the lab of Prof. Eduardo Mitrani from Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and was licensed under an exclusive worldwide agreement with Yissum, the technology transfer office of the Hebrew University.
Hebrew University’s Yissum tech transfer company sets out to commercialize local innovative agricultural technologies
Nano Dimension’s novel and proprietary technologies enable the use of conductive ink for ultra-rapid prototyping of complex, high-performance, multilayer printed circuit boards. The company’s DragonFly 2020 3D PCB printer is the result of combining technological breakthroughs in inkjets, 3D printing and nanotechnology. The new patented system is capable of switching between three different modes: inkjet, cleaning, and suction, which allow it to maintain a stable temperature, facilitate cleaning, and make it possible to recycle the ink into the main tank for reuse.
Agrinnovation announced today the closing of a U.S. $4.0 million first round of financing. The round of investment was led by the Victor Smorgon Group from Australia.

HIPPY, or Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters, is designed to help low-income parents prepare their 3- to 5-year-old children to start school. Parents receive a weekly curriculum. They are given books on a schedule — every week or every other week — including a new book that teaches them how to become their child’s first teacher.
The program was started in Israel in 1969 to help immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East prepare for life in their new country. HIPPY, which still operates in its native country, came to the United States in 1980 via the National Council for Jewish Women’s Research Institute for Innovation in Education at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
A patented, highly efficient and environmentally responsible nanoparticle synthesis process enables the unique properties of AgCite inks. The process is licensed through inks pioneer Professor Shlomo Magdassi and Yissum Research Development Company, the technology transfer company of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The nanoparticle synthesis process begins with a silver precursor raw material and allows for fine control of the size, shape and distribution of the silver nanoparticles in accordance with customers’ printing requirements. This nanoparticle synthesis process is critical to the types of nanoparticles and ink formulations that can be produced.
