01:15 PM - 02:30 PM        (CR.7) Promoting Technological Entrepreneurship in the Field of Disabilities (COSP-9 Side Event).
Technological ecosystems have been in existence in the business world for some years, especially in the high-tech sector. Such a system includes the full range of stakeholders who are involved and who influence the development of innovative products and their introduction into the market. This is done by building a comprehensive network which provides entrepreneurs with the supports they need to turn a concept into a marketable product. Such an ecosystem has yet to be developed focusing on developing products for people with disabilities.    Israel is at the forefront of developing a disabilities-focused ecosystem which pools all the knowledge, support and cooperation required for an entrepreneur to develop a concept, providing tools and supports, market research, as well as assistance in finding funding and a link to specialists and customers. Such an ecosystem will provide exposure  and leverage existing initiatives; help newcomers learn from successes and failures of others; assist in exporting effective solutions to the world; and provide entrepreneurs with access to knowledge, guidance, resources and community.
Speakers: Beit Issie Shapiro: A Disability-Focused Ecosystem; TOM (Tikkun Olam Makers); Sarah Herrlinger, Apple.
