Deloitte Launchpad announces second cohort with 7 new startups

Deloitte Launchpad has announced the seven new startups that will take part in its second cohort. The initiative, which is run by Deloitte, launched in 2020 and supports Israeli growth-stage startups and their desires to penetrate the U.S market by providing services to Deloitte’s global network.
The chosen companies will receive guidance from teams in the U.S and Israel to address three major challenges: laying foundations for relocation to the states, establishing strong and sustainable sales infrastructure, and support for funding.
