The Israeli Opportunity

  1. 1. THE ISRAELI OPPORTUNITY
  2. 2. ISRAEL • Population 7,465,000 (2009 est.) • GDP $205.7 billion (2008 est.) • GDP growth 4.2% (2008 est.), ‐ 0.8% (2009 prediction according to UBS) • GDP per capita $28,900 (2008 est.) • In May 2007, Israel was invited to join the OECD.
  3. 3. THE START UP NATION There are about 80 venture capital funds operating in Israel, with the total capital raised at $10.6B and investments made in more than 1000 Israeli start‐up companies. Many of these start‐ups went through successful IPO's, and there are presently 70 Israeli companies traded on NASDAQ and around 30 traded on various European exchanges. Israel is ranked second, after Canada, in terms of number of non‐US companies traded on NASDAQ . Since 1993, the average size of the leading Israeli VCs fund, jumped from $20M in 1993 to more than $250 M today. (IVC)
  4. 4. A QUICK TOUR
  5. 5. GOOGLE "ISRAEL IS THE BEST COUNTRY FOR ENTREPRENEURS AFTER THE USA" (Eric Shmidt, CEO of Google)
  6. 6. MICROSOFT “OUR COMPANY IS ALMOST AS ISRAELI AS AMERICAN” (Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO)
  7. 7. WHY ? Why Israel: ?
  8. 8. START UP NATION
  9. 9. BECAUSE Israel has the highest density of tech start‐ups in the world. More importantly, these start‐ups attract more venture capital dollars per person than any country — 2.5 times the U.S., 30 times Europe, 80 times India, and 300 times China. Israel has more companies on the tech‐oriented NASDAQ than any country outside the U.S., more than all of Europe, Japan, Korea, India, and China combined. But it’s not just about start‐ups. Scratch almost any major tech company — Intel, Microsoft, Google, Cisco, Motorola, and so on — and you will find that Israeli talent and technology play a major role in keeping these multinational companies on the cutting edge.
