From Start-up Nation to Scale-up Nation: Israel in 2014

1,151

Published on

Israel's shown it's proficient at starting and building early-stage companies.

It hasn't shown it can create larger, lasting multinational firms. But that's changing.

With the 2013 Wix.com IPO and Google's acquisition of social driving app, Waze, Israeli entrepreneurs are changing their focus. Israeli professionals are looking beyond quick exits and are investing in building larger companies headquartered in the holy land.
