Mogul to introduce Israeli start-ups in U.S.


Haim Saban will invite up to 20 Israeli start-up companies to make presentations to U.S. media firms.

This will mark the third year that the Israeli-American media mogul has issued invitations to Israeli start-ups to make their pitches to companies such as Universal Studios, Walt Disney Co., Facebook and MTV, the Israeli business daily Globes reported Tuesday.

The Saban Capital Group also is seeking investment opportunities, Globes reported. The company’s managing director, Craig Cooper, visited Israel about six weeks ago to investigate start-up companies in which to invest.
