NatureGrowth Announces the Launch of                              "SafeSpace" 







Sderot, November 6, 2023

In response to the recent unsettling events in Sderot and

the Otef region, NatureGrowth, a pioneer in Israel's high-tech Agtech sector, together with Bank Hapoalim and the Sderot Development Fund, is taking a step forward to support the community.

Today, the company announced two groundbreaking initiatives, SafeSpace, a free professional workspace for 30 startups launched immediately, and SderoTech a mini-fund of $3,000,000 aimed at creating and funding 10 new startups in Sderot, set to be launched in March 2024.

Oren Heiman, NatureGrowth’s CEO commented:

"Times of adversity often bring out the best in communities. With SafeSpace and SderoTech, we hope to create a lasting positive impact. While we cannot change what has happened, we can shape what's to come."


In response to the unsettling events in Sderot and the Otef, in November 2023, NatureGrowth launched SafeSpace, a professional shared workspace offered to startups and small businesses wishing to work from a safe and common workspace in Sderot for free.
We offer complimentary furnished workspaces and offices, conference rooms, refreshments, wifi, services, and rent.  The center is supported by Bank Hapoalim and the Sderot Development Fund, providing immediate relief and long-term support to the people of Sderot.
