Israel is recognized as the “start-up nation” and is moving into “the scale up nation”. Today there are more than 500 international Corporate R&D/innovation centres in Israel. Each year the country produces around 1.000 top-notch high-tech start-ups and in 2019 a record of 8,3 billion USD was invested in start-ups and companies in the scale up phase. Key to success have been amongst others the successful implementation of support programs and creating an innovation ecosystem attracting global investors and corporate venture and their networks to Israel.
