The Behavioral Economics Summit for Startups 2012

Live from Palo Alto to Tel-Aviv, Aug 25-26th, 2012

Israeli startup founders raved about the first Israeli extension and thanks to Dan Ariely and his collaborators and Google Israel, The Summit will extend to Israel this year too.

We’re keeping what worked great last year – the forum of inspiring Israeli entrepreneurs and the Q&A session with Dan on specific challenges of attending startups, and we’re working to significantly upgrade AV quality of streaming of live talks.

Startup-Onomics is about infusing behavioral economics into the core DNA of new companies. It’s about HOW your users make decisions and WHY they make them. And more importantly, it’s about understanding the implications of this behavior to your bottom line.

All about behavioral economics (BE) for startups, the speakers, how BE techniques increase site conversion rates, create effective pricing strategy, improve customer and employee retention and overall help users change the ‘hard-to-change’ behavior, in the main Startup-Onomics Summit website.

This was last year’s event. And here’re more pics of some of the best moments.

Who should attend?

Game Changing Startups. Founders, designers, product people and other professionals that are trying to have a big impact by changing the way people behave. This year, we’re going for startups focused on changing the world for the better. You’re either saving lives, money, the earth or our youth. Health, Finance, Environment, Education or Big Data.
