Michael Cantor Joins Connecticut's Economic Development Delegation to Israel
Michael Cantor, Co-Managing Partner of Cantor Colburn LLP and Chair of Connecticut Innovations, will accompany Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont and other public and private sector leaders on a trip to Israel. The weeklong trip from February 17-25, 2022 will focus on strengthening Connecticut's connections to members of Israel’s innovation ecosystem, including venture capitalists, incubators, accelerators, and thought leaders.
The delegation also includes representatives from the public and private sectors: Raytheon Technologies, Hartford HealthCare, Digital Currency Group, the Jewish Federation Association of Connecticut., the University of Connecticut, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, and Connecticut Innovations.
The visit will draw to a close on Feb. 24 with a VentureClash event, led by Connecticut Innovations, the state’s venture capital arm. The event will include pitches from innovative companies seeking to expand in the U.S. who also have a compelling reason to come to Connecticut.
