MTM#58: Israeli Tech - Ten Years of Startup Nation
mer. 30 janvier à 00:00
Ten Years ago (November 2009), Dan Senor and Saul Singer published "Startup Nation". It examined how Israel, a 60-year-old nation with a population of 7.1 million, was able to reach such economic growth that "at the start of 2009, some 63 Israeli companies were listed on the NASDAQ, more than those of any other foreign country." On January 29th, 2019, we will hear from four experts who work with Israel and the United States or with technology companies in Israel and tell us of the technology explosion that has happened in Israel, the unicorns that have come out of the tiny nation, and what the future looks like. Our speakers and panelists:
