Australian leaders and disability organizations expressed interest in assistive technology innovation coming out of Israel following adoption of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, an Australian Government program to support people with disabilities and their families. Subsequently, a group of Israeli entrepreneurs was now introduced to Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Guy Spigelman, CEO of PresenTense in Israel, was in charge of organising the meetings between the innovators (among them Paratrek, Sesame-Enable, NiniSpeech and Yooocan) and the financial investors from Down Under.
