Our weekly review of the Israeli biz-tech scene will focus this time on the positive sides of the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis we are all dealing with these days. Alongside the growing list of cities and countries that are placed on lockdown and all the difficulties that are piling up, an optimistic phenomenon is emerging. Established tech companies have decided to channel their capabilities, energies, and strengths towards donating and contributing back to the community.
