Volkswagen Group officially opened the Volkswagen Group Campus Tel Aviv on Tuesday, in the presence of Economy Minister Eli Cohen.

The campus, “Konnect,” will provide local partners and start-ups direct access to the Volkswagen Group and its many brands. It will support in business collaborations with the innovative tech scene in Israel as well as support in mentoring and consulting.

“I am a strong believer in the technological innovations being developed within the Israeli market and I am convinced that they can help us reach our goal of being one of the global market leaders in sustainable mobility,” said Peter Harris, chief customer officer of Volkswagen Group. “Konnect is another step in expanding our activities in Israel and will help our portfolio of brands engage with the Israeli start-up ecosystem.”

Volkswagen showcased Konnect’s activities at the Ecomotion conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday. As part of its activities in Israel, Konnect and the Volkswagen Brand are supporting 41 local start-ups with innovative business ideas connected to the future of mobility.
