About Olim In Tech 

Founded in 2017, Olim in Tech is a volunteer led community geared towards empowering & connecting olim who work or want to be working in hi-tech.

Olim in Tech aims to bridge the gap by fostering a supportive community of open minded olim through our online presence and by hosting frequent events. Typical events include happy hours, speaker events, professional workshops, and more.
