Tel Aviv, Israel – CIV’s research awards aim to encourage and celebrate academic research in the field of venture with the goal of making a significant contribution to understanding and shaping the venture ecosystem. These awards and the Institute may provide the winners with a unique platform to discuss and disseminate their work, including participation in our future events.
The call for awards was published through various CIV channels, on the social networks, through university research authorities and academic networks (e.g., SSRN, WikiCFP, etc.). During the submission period (1-Dec-2016 – 31-Jan-2017), a total of 36 new papers were submitted to the competition. All the papers were independently reviewed by two judges – Prof. Eli Talmor (London Business School) and Prof. Yesha Sivan (Coller Institute of Venture), and the winners were decided according to their reviews.
On February 20, 2017, CIV awarded one Grand Prize and two Runner-up awards. We hereby announce the winners as follows:
