Israel’s Economic Strength is Also Its Security

It did not take long for Israelis to understand how important the country’s economic prosperity is for its future. It is not only important for Israel, it is also important in the entire Middle East. And that is when Israel started its gigantic innovation path to gain the name “a startup nation.”

But, to gain such recognition it is very difficult to go it alone. What is needed is help in the form of funding and much collaboration and support.

For startup companies in Israel there are distinguished United States based collaborators such as:

Merage Institute, committed to promoting trade, as a vehicle to economic growth, between Israel and the United States. The institute accomplishes this commitment through a number of innovative initiatives, including specialized Leadership Programs concerning U.S. marketing strategies to Israeli executives in the life sciences, security, military, IT areas and more. The Merage programs emphasize highly effective approaches to successful marketing, negotiation techniques, applied networking and sales strategies, finance, and legal and procurement issues concerning conducting business with and within the United States.

Elite Entrepreneur Society, Kathrine Kahen, President, a global business network of young entrepreneurs, enabling small and large business owners to learn from each other, leading to greater business success and enriched personal life, with a vision to build the world’s most influential entrepreneur community.

Southern California Israel Chamber of Commerce, fostering business trade and investments opportunities in California and Israel.

It is worth noting that among the evening’s guests were representatives of IsraAID, the largest humanitarian aid organization from Israel. IsraAID draws on an extensive roster of leading Israeli and international experts. It has a unique position to design and implement high-quality, cost-effective and innovative programming that fully reflects the immediate and long-term needs of populations affected by disasters worldwide. Also, the leaders of Unit 699 Alumni, Unit 699 being the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) primary rescue unit, operating within and outside Israel’s borders.

The goal of this evening is to introduce the startup’s idea and its position of progress to the public. This introduction allows them to seek partnership and investors and thus a financial boost, to bring the innovation to the market.

This similar-startups get-together takes place several times each year, helping Israeli entrepreneurs to be known, hopefully achieve development progress with the final goal to have worldwide success and encompassing recognition.

The famous Israeli innovations’ main goal is simple: make the word a better place to live and make the life of all people so much better.
