Several startups run by ultra-Orthodox people will take part in the upcoming Calcalist Mind and Tech conference in New York from April 10 to 12, according to a report by the Hebrew business website CTech.

In general, haredi people are underrepresented in Israel’s hi-tech sector. A 2017 study by the Ministry of Finance found that haredim are 10% of the population but less than 1% of those employed in the hi-tech arena.

Seven of the haredi startups that will be at the Calcalist conference are from an accelerator run by the nonprofit KamaTech, which works to facilitate the successful integration of haredim into the Israeli High-Tech workforce.

In an interview with Calcalist, KamaTech CEO Moishe Friedman said, “There are some million ultra-orthodox people in Israel and there is great talent here. If we can build a bridge between them and Israeli tech, miracles could happen.”
