Israel – Third Best Place to Invest in Start-Ups
In the field of Information Technology and Bio Tech, Silicon Valley (South San Francisco) ranks as the best place for Venture Capitalists to invest in, home to ex-garage startups like Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, eBay, Salesforce, IBM, Apple, HP, VMware… etc and home to Standford University and UC Berkeley (campus which founded the Hippie movement);
While Boston (Cambridge) comes in at second spot, hosting supperb universities such as MIT and Harvard, and start-ups such as Akamai, and a whole breed of Software as a Service start-ups;
Shockingly, Tel-Aviv, Israel came in, in third place. Yep, Israel, our neighbor to the south, the 60 year old nation, has climbed the list to be placed third best place to invest in for start-ups (rating largely depends on return on investments – ROI). So hell yeah, you must give credit where credit is due.
So there you have it, Israel – Due to it’s massive Research and Development funding (mostly for military purposes), Israel is not a country to reckon with lightly.
n.b. Israel has the most PhD graduates per capita in the world.
