About Space Cafe Tel-Aviv

Space Café is a community gathering for space professionals created by International Space University alums and takes place regularly in several locations around the globe. With the help of many ISU alums, including Michael Potter, we aim to bring SpaceCafé to every city where ISU alums reside.

Space Café TLV was founded by Ofer Lapid and Ran Livne of the Ramon Foundation and the Israel Space Agency's support to add Tel Aviv to the global map. We intended to introduce incoming VIPs to the local ecosystem, but we temporarily opted for live events since most traveling had come to a halt due to COVID-19.
