He says $4.8 billion of venture capital investment in the country is in startups and 85% of it comes from foreign investors. “We invest 4.3% of our GDP on R&D,” he says. Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Deutsche Telecom, and Bosch and 350 other multinational giants have research centres in Israel. “One of the most important pillars of the nation is its deep public-private collaboration,” he says.

The report says that approximately 78% of the startups currently operating raised capital at least once from an external source such as angel investors, venture capital funds or government funding. The startups are mostly tech enterprises in areas like health technology, phone apps, robotics, cyber security and artificial intelligence.
