On one hand...

On the other: if we want Django to catch on in Israel as a technology  
used for commercial ventures, then educating the VC's on why Django is  
a Good Thing(tm) is essential. Otherwise, your average VC will say  
"I've never heard of this python thing. Build it in PHP or we don't  
give you any money."

We have a relatively easy case to make -- google is big on python,  
appengine is python, Rails is becoming popular enough that we can  
reference it as a "we're like that" story. VC's will not magically  
learn this stuff on their own.

Just my $0.02. Purists might not like it but the VC's influence a lot  
of the money out there, directly or indirectly. Evangelizing django  
and python to them would not be a bad idea.

As for location suggestion: the Hub is still an option. It's not free  
(but not expensive).
