JNS.org – The American software giant Oracle has chosen five Israeli high-tech companies to participate in its first-ever Start-up Cloud Accelerator Program in Tel Aviv.

The first Israeli start-ups to participate in the biannual program include the predictive maintenance company 3DSignals, global networking company Nsof Networks, artificial intelligence platform Bonobo.ai, smart audio-visual guidance platform Toonimo and software service company Zoomin.

The companies will develop their technologies in a cooperative workspace and be granted direct access to Oracle’s customers, business partners and investors. The accelerator also provides the Israeli teams with mentoring from leading technology and business experts.

By launching the accelerator, Oracle hopes to discover new Israeli entrepreneurial talent that can assist the company in becoming the world’s leading cloud-service provider.
