The 2020 Genesis Prize Laureate, Jewish leader and activist Natan Sharansky, has chosen to gift the $1 million Genesis prize to 15 Non-Governmental Organizations and institutions in the humanitarian, social, scientific and medical fields working to mitigate the impact of coronavirus and advance recovery.
In addition, Mr. Sharansky has initiated a special competition recognizing Israeli companies working to combat coronavirus and the damage of future pandemics. GPF, assisted by Start-Up Nation Central, will award prizes to Israeli companies that have made significant contributions to fighting COVID-19, or are working on promising technologies, therapies, or vaccines that have the potential to provide significant benefit in the near future.
All Israeli companies listed on innovation discovery platform Start-Up Nation Finder, sporting the coronavirus tag, were automatically included in this competition. A distinguished group of judges shortlisted 21 companies in seven categories.
