Startup Nation Digital Pathology company Augmentiqs was awarded the 2017 Initiative for Zionist Innovation Award, and an entrepreneurial grant for new business by the non-for-profit group Nefesh b’Nefesh.
Nefesh b’Nefesh is an organization that supports new immigrants as they transition to life in Israel, and the Initiative for Zionist Innovation is an award that seeks the next generation of activists and innovators looking to contribute to social and business innovation within the spirit of Zionism.
As a true startup nation digital pathology company, Augmentiqs is honored to be chosen as a recipient of the award and business grant, as the award accurately portrays the company’s innovative technology and commitment to social welfare. As several of Augmentiqs team members were immigrants at one point, the company is looking forward to collaborating with Nefesh b’Nefesh in helping new immigrants with job opportunities and other assistance.
