Innovation speed dating
sat down with a number of start-up executives last week during the 2015 DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Conference in an event designed to allow the innovators to briefly give a pitch and rotate among members of the press.
While each “session” was supposed to be limited to 10 minutes, the brevity of each meeting was, like in the formalized dating system, noted by certain standout qualities.: Cimagine Furniture and home-ware consumers have the option of virtually visualizing products in their homes or offices prior to purchase with Cimagine’s augmented commerce technology.
While the start-up founded in 2012 currently pertains to furniture and electronics, CEO and co-founder Yoni Nevo says in the future the company may expand to include jewelry and apparel.
A few weeks ago, I did something that I’ve never done before—I went on seven dates in one day.

Each group will rotate clockwise after each session until they have met every provider.
We find some solace by reminding ourselves that parties and bars are not exactly perfect research environments.
It is true that people at parties can often form real relationships with real futures, and this external validity makes such social gatherings ideal sources of data on real-life mating behaviour (Eastwick & Finkel, in press). After a set amount of time (usually five minutes), a bell signals everyone to move to another station and begin the dating process all over again.
