Israel may be a tiny country geographically and a small country in population, but it is recognized internationally as a giant in innovation — hence the bestselling 2009 book and informal moniker “The Startup Nation.” People all over the world are using innovative, even revolutionary, products and services created in Israel, even though in most cases they’re likely to be unaware of the game-changers’ actual origin.
Quote: “There are over 6,000 startups currently in Israel. There are currently more than 30 technology companies [each] valued over US$1 billion (unicorn startups) in Israel, more than all of Europe combined.” || “Waze. Monday. Diagnostic Robotics. Via. Orcam. SeeTree. FundBox. Moovit. SparkBeyond. Lemonade. What do all of these household-name companies have in common? They’re all from Israel.”
