Next October

The Next October initiative harnesses Israeli innovation to honor the memory of those lost in the October 2023 Hamas War. More than 1,400 innovative startup companies will commemorate the victims of the war, soldiers and civilians, while building innovative products and services which will be implemented globally and will make for a better world.

 A startup company is designated for each fallen soldier and for each civilian victim of the war. Next October will track the progress of the commemoration activities over the years, suggesting various initiatives for remembrance. Moreover, Next October adds ongoing value to its startups through mentorship programs, connections with investors and networking opportunities.

Startups participating in the Next October initiative commit to “doing good” as a core value.

They pledge to honor the victims of the war in various ways, depending on their capacity and while keeping in mind the legacies of the victims they will be commemorating.
