Often known as “Startup Nation”, Israel is home to more than 6,000 startup companies and counting. That is more startup companies per capita than any other country in the world and second only to the US in actual numbers. Israel is also home to one of the largest venture capital industries in the world. Israel has the third largest amount of companies traded on the NASDAQ and NYSE. Much of the technology used today, such as Intel Chips, SMS and firewall software were invented in Israel.
By studying Israel’s economy and getting to work first-hand with Israeli companies, we don’t just get a global mindset, but get to work with a truly amazing and unique economic powerhouse.
