How Did Israel Become the Start-Up Nation?

Produced by VisuakPolitik, a YouTube channel about global politics and international events, this video (09:33) explores how a country as small and turbulent as Israel managed to become one of the world’s innovation leaders. While mentioning other factors, such as Israeli “chutzpah” and the influence of mandatory military service, this video attributes Israel’s Start Up success to Yozma, a government initiative that attracts foreign venture-capital investments in Israel, Israel’s open immigration policy, and its high level academic institutions and educational system.
