High‐Tech Start‐Ups In Israel

High‐tech start‐ups in Israel are thriving. Israel’s dynamic tech startup scene is known around the world. The country has been called the “start-up nation” for years, and today, only the U.S. and China have more companies listed on the NASDAQ than Israel’s 90 – worth a total of $40 billion. Innovation continues, and a new crop of Israeli tech startups is on its way up, transforming healthcare, entertainment, finance, media, and many other industries. The hot startups have secured funding from investors and are perhaps on their way to successful exits or IPOs.
