We are a foundation that generates value by recognizing and promoting the talent of innovators, linking them with Israeli innovation to identify the main challenges, generate solution proposals and thus improve people’s lives and the development of their countries.
Israel is a young state that gained its independence in 1948 and is also one of the most innovative countries in the world. This Middle Eastern nation has achieved thanks to its culture and a solid motivation to develop innovation, which we can describe as the Innovation Triangle because it unites wills. On the one hand, that of the government as a promoter; secondly, those of universities and entrepreneurs; and finally, the private sector. In other words, promoting, knowing, and undertaking as fully synchronized axes of a new low-cost development engine, which Israel has achieved.

The idea of creating ILAN was born from the inspiration of a man who marked my life in the last 10 years; the former president of Israel Shimon Peres, a man who had a clear vision that, through technology and innovation, it is possible to improve the lives of millions of people.
I ever asked him, what is the secret that so many people love you? And he replied, “It’s very easy: you have to serve the public, not use the public.”
A noble and authentic spirit of service and help distinguished him.
One of his wonderful phrases, which motivates me the most, is “As long as you have more dreams than achievements, you are young”. Shimon Peres, at 92 years old, died young because he had more dreams than years.
