Dan Senor: The Start-Up Nation at 70

In his address (21:06) at the Jewish Funders Network 2018 International Conference in Tel Aviv, Dan Senor, co author of Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, discusses how Israel’s role in the global innovation ecosystem has continued to develop since the writing of his book in 2009. He explores Israel’s growing connection to the world through multinationals setting up R&D centers in Israel and acquiring Israeli start-ups, investors from abroad investing in Israeli start-ups, and the engagement of Start Up Nation Central with companies, governments and NGOs around the world. Delving into the partnerships between Israel and China and India, Senor shows how Israel provides innovative problem-solving technologies, while also sharing the unique aspects of Israeli society that contribute to the creation of so many successful, young innovators.
