Israel & Tel Aviv

Israel is a global cluster of innovation and entrepreneurship. The country produces more startups per-capita than China, India, Canada, Japan and the UK and attracts twice as much venture-capital investment as the US and 30 times more than Europe. At the center of it all is Tel Aviv. Ranked Europe's 'main technology hub' by the Wall Street Journal, “The world’s 2nd best start-up ecosystem” by Startup Genome and “3rd Best City” by Lonely Planet, Tel Aviv is the heart of the 'Start-Up Nation' and home to Israel’s start-up community.
