About Us

Geektime is the largest international tech blog located outside the U.S., focusing on global innovation and highlighting startups from across the world. In addition to our in-house content, Geektime’s startup contributor network provides a voice to non U.S.-based startups, which comprise some 80% of the global startup market. We are their primary voice to investors, entrepreneurs, fellow geeks and tech enthusiasts, helping them cut through regional boundaries and compete in the global marketplace.

Since June 2013, Geektime.com has ensnared the startup and technology world by providing them with their daily fix of news, updates, and articles on various topics in technology; quickly becoming a withdrawal inducing morning, afternoon and evening vice for its readers; even trumping coffee in many independent studies as the first thing tech inclined individuals must have before starting off their workday. Geektime boasts a reader base of more than 500,000 unique visitors a month. These are die-hard tech lovers who know their devices, companies and technologies – and Geektime is their trusted shady source for everything Geek.

In addition to covering the technology sphere, Geektime, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, is also a partner and contributor for many of Israel’s leading tech events, providing front and center media coverage of the latest and greatest coming out of the Israeli startup, IT and entrepreneurship scenes.
