    Spotlight for 2017

    Israel – The Startup Nation

    The transformation of Israel into one of the most innovative countries in the world is nothing short of a miracle – from their model of desert agriculture to their recent metamorphosis into a high-tech super power. Israel has more Nasdaq-listed companies than any country barring US and China. It has more venture capital per capita and more startups than any other country in the world. Research and development (R&D) is a thrust area for the country, which also has more scientists and tech professionals than any other nation. In fact, as the Mayor likes to point out, the city itself is a start-up. It was built from scratch in the desert, outside the old Arab city of Jaffa, or Yafo as it is now called, over the last 100 years. Tel Aviv is now ranked as the fifth most robust start-up ecosystem in the world, according to a study by research firm Compass.

    At MeltingPot2020 we shall have a special spotlight session comprising of bureaucrats and officials from Israel and India to exchange insights and share lessons that each can learn from the other in their quest to become the hub for global innovation.
