JLM-BioCity was founded by professionals from the life sciences and biomed fields. We envision Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel’s Biomed and life-sciences industry.
Jerusalem has the potential to lead Israel in the Biomed industry, being home to some of Israel’s most prestige medical and academic institutions including the Hebrew University, Hadassah Medical Center, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Herzog Hospital, as well as three leading engineering colleges; the JCT – Lev Academic Center, Azrieli College for Engineering and Hadassah College and Israel’s leading design school. the Bezalel Academy for Arts and Design. This concentration of research and academic education is complemented by many incubators and accelerators for start-ups, some specializing in the life science. Jerusalem enjoys an aggressive governmental program, Bio-Jerusalem, aimed to promote the life sciences based industry with significant budgets.
