TrueFuture, the online television docuseries exploring people, places, and technology, launches Season 4 with Start Up Nation: Israel, an eight episode series focusing on Israel’s booming tech landscape, while also honing in on the rapidly evolving health tech sector.
In the series, “TrueFuture: Israel” hosted by tech entrepreneur and The Mullings Group founder Joe Mullings, viewers will go behind the scenes to meet Israeli innovators whose technology aims to change the world while taking part in the local culture in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and other locations across Israel.
“Most of us have lots of preconceived ideas of Israel, and so did I. What I found was a nation on the cutting edge of medtech, health tech, robotics, and artificial intelligence,” said Mullings, “At the same time, the timeless culture of Israel permeates every aspect of society there – including the technology industry. The country competes on the world stage of technological innovation but in a way distinctly its own.”
During the season, viewers will meet a wide range of “techpreneurs” including those at a children’s hospital who have created their own R&D lab to build customized medical devices for their pint-sized patients and an American-educated tech mogul whose start-up incubator promises to reimagine cancer therapy. Mullings also introduces viewers to some of the people who create the unique fabric of Israel, including shopkeepers and thought leaders.
The series features companies such as technology incubator, MEDX Ventures/CEO Shai Policker, Professor Moshe Shoham, CTO of Mazor Robotics, a founding father of Israel’s robust medical robotics industry, and women such as venture capitalist Michal Geva, co-founder and managing partner of Triventures and inventor Anat Amibar, who is developing a smart-phone app for digital eye examinations.
“We think of technology as a worldwide phenomenon that is uniform. But what we’ve found in filming ‘TrueFuture’ – both in previous seasons and now in the fourth season’s focus on Israel – is that local culture influences how technology is created in profound ways. Like with food, art, fashion or religion, technology reflects the people who are making it – their history, beliefs, conflicts, and aspirations. Simply put, technology develops in response to local needs,” Mullings said.
New episodes for the series will become available every two weeks beginning Oct. 22nd. During the alternate weeks, additional background footage from each preceding episode will be made available. The first eight episodes are now available for free at TrueFuture.tv.
