Summer is over and the new season promises to be more exciting and hopeful. The Israeli Technology Center (ITC) that we mentioned in our previous newsletter is taking shape. We have opened a new office to be used by both the ITC and for small meetings by Silicom Ventures (SV). In this newsletter we also have some news about our portfolio companies. Finally, we want to remind all of you to RSVP to our annual cocktail party. We expect to be overbooked as we were last year and priority will be given to those who RSVP.
