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 are on their way up, transforming healthcare, entertainment, finance, media, and a myriad of other industries. The hot startups have secured funding from investors, and are perhaps on their way to successful exits or IPOs.
