Startup Nation: Israel

Radiocasts | November 7, 2013 by Bonnie D. Graham

According to Dan Senor and Saul Singer’s book, Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, Israel has the world’s most start-ups per capita and the world’s highest concentration of spending on research and development. Equally impressive, Israel attracted as much venture capital as Germany and France combined in 2008—nearly $2 billion. And Israel has more Nasdaq-listed companies than all of Europe and any country besides the U.S. How can this country of just seven million, and under continual military threat, be so fertile for innovation? The experts speak.
