In a small country roughly the size of New Jersey and with a population of just over 9 million people, there are more startups per capita than any other country in the world. And it’s been a great year for the startup nation.
At Start-Up Nation Central, we believe that Israel’s innovative spirit can help solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges
In 2022, this translated to bringing over 1100 multinational corporations and more than 3000 Israeli startups into conversation. By facilitating these engagements, Start-Up Nation Central accelerates the spread and implementation of leading-edge technologies that are making the world better for everyone.
Israel has a long history of investing in research and development, and it has a strong ecosystem of startups, venture capital firms, and academic institutions that support and encourage innovation. This focus has allowed Israel to become a leader in a number of areas, including verticals that have significant global applications such as climate, agriculture and food, and healthcare technology.
The startup nation also has a culture that encourages entrepreneurship and risk-taking. Mandatory military service for all citizens cultivate a sense of teamwork and camaraderie that carries into the business world. Additionally, the country’s small size and close-knit community make it easier for entrepreneurs to network and collaborate, which can be crucial for the success of a startup – but getting all the output out there requires a bit of work.
That’s where we come in.
Israel is a testament to the power of innovation and technology to address global challenges. From solving issues related to clean drinking water and food insecurity to improving healthcare and reducing carbon emissions, the country’s focus on technology and entrepreneurship is helping to make the world a better place. And Start-Up Nation Central is helping make it happen faster and more efficiently.
2022 was a massive year – emerging from a global pandemic, navigating the contraction of the hitech sector, and facing yet-unresolved global challenges. Despite the uncertain return to a new normal, Start-Up Nation Central unwaveringly empowered Israeli innovation and connected it to the world. We can’t wait for 2023.
