Israel is a country known around the world as "The Startup Nation". Through its human capital, Israel generates more start-up companies than large, industrial nations around the world. In addition, Israel has, per capita, attracted over twice as much venture capital investment as the US and 30 times more than all the members of the European Union combined.
Tel Aviv is the business capital of Israel and a leading innovation hub with a local ecosystem of world class tech talents, dozens of leading multinationals and hundreds of tech star startups. The city was named Europe’s leading tech hub by the Wall Street Journal and ranked by Startup Genome as the 2nd best place in the world to open a startup!
