Grant Application


" I've been fortunate enough to have Haggai as my mentor on my startup BrainWizer as part of Inno-Negev accelerator. I consider him one of the best mentors I had. His strong ability to analyze and distill multiple sources of information (i.e. market trends, competitor analysis, customer demands, technical software implementation details, enablement requirements) to form clear strategic vision and make tough decisions...

I hired Mr. Yedidya to manage the project of applying for a grant by the Israeli Innovation Authority. Haggai took complete ownership of nearly any aspect of the project. He even wrote most of the grant application by his own, including chapters re: technology, marketing, financial, sales predictions, competition, etc. Haggai then prepared us for the meeting with the chief scientist examiner. Haggai knew the chief scientist protocols by heart, and managed the whole process seamlessly. Our success was exceptional. We received a grant which exceed our and our investor's expectations.

a Personal Note from:

Haggai Yedidya

My career in the hi-tech industry in Israel and abroad took me through many steps, positions, and challenges.

My experience includes being a startup company CEO, raising funds from various investors (venture capitalists, angel investors, chief scientist, etc.), winning high-profile competitions, giving interviews in top TV channels, giving guest-talks to thousands of professionals as well as mentoring CEOs.

My hands-on experience includes content writing, inventing and submitting patents, market analyzes, digital marketing (e.g. online courses creation, website design, SEO campaigns, keyword research, trends analyzes, competition analyzes, SWOT analysis, etc.), branding, and what’s not. 

In addition I had a career of a performing artist. I performed  as a pianist in more than 20 states in the US.

Everywhere I go, I try to bring added value. I try to leverage my broad life experience as well as strategic and critical thinking skills. This holds true whether I try to obtain a grant from the Israeli Innovation Authority, or  “just” design a website. This , in essence, is who I am.


Winning Startup Competitions

Yes, I’ve indeed won quite a few competitions. I actually wrote a series of articles about my journey, revealing many of the secrets I used to win startup competitions. You can read about it in my blog here, and here.

No. I’ve never paid anything (neither money nor “sponsorship” or alike) to win a startup competition. Rather, the opposite is true.

In the international competition by Kasperky, for example, my company Cyber DriveWare, won monetary prizes in addition to coverage of lodging expenses and a generous hospitality.

Yes. An expert could train you in order to significantly improve your overall chances of making it to the finals and winning competitions.

As a mentor I cannot promise winnings, but I can certainly provide you with the tools to improve your messaging, presence, overall impression, chemistry with the judges, etc.

Feel free to contact me in the contact form below.

Yes. I wrote highly successful grant applications, submitted them to the Israeli Innovation Authority, passed the examiner's review and then received outstanding results. 

Innovation Authority Grants

Yes. I wrote highly successful grant applications, submitted them to the Israeli Innovation Authority, passed the examiner's review and then received outstanding results.

I take complete ownership of grant applications, for my customers. I strategize the process and then follow a hands-on approach to execute the strategy.

I personally write the content for the grant application. I acquire market research, stats, and other materials which are then analyzed, summed-up and submitted with the application.

I conduct research on behalf of my customer, I interview my customer, and help find the most accurate and strategic answers.

This type of service is mostly unique.

Yes, an expert should have a good idea of a company’s chances of receiving a grant from the Innovation Authority.

I am personally highly familiar with the Innovation Law, Israeli Innovation Authority protocols, inner practices, examination process, characteristics of specific examiners, etc.

Based on my vast experience working with the chief scientist, I believe that I have a good assessment of a company’s chances of receiving a grant.

Additionally, my consultation is intended to significantly improve success rate.

Website Design & SEO


I build website end-to-end, including web design and functionality, including: website pages, blog, menus, header, footer, animations and effects, contact form, popups, lead magnets, messaging, slogans, content, schema, on-page SEO and what’s not.


I've actually built this website (Startups Israel), end-to-end. Here is another site I've done recently for a customer.


My web design service would usually range anywhere between $3,000 to $10,000.

My service does not end with building state-of-the-art websites, but rather includes a complete package of managed hosting, fast page load times, schema, SEO and whatever it takes to make your site worthy of the 1st page in Google.

My added values or complementary services include strategic consultation regarding your business needs, brainstorming, keyword research, market analyzes, competitive landscape, market research, and beyond.

This is to assure that your website would deliver the results we aim for.
