Start-Up Nation addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel -- a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources-- produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK? With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Senor and Singer examine the lessons of the country's adversity-driven culture, which flattens hierarchy and elevates informality-- all backed up by government policies focused on innovation. In a world where economies as diverse as Ireland, Singapore and Dubai have tried to re-create the "Israel effect", there are entrepreneurial lessons well worth noting. As America reboots its own economy and can-do spirit, there's never been a better time to look at this remarkable and resilient nation for some impressive, surprising clues.

Israel the Start Up Nation for Medical Innovation

Israel  the Start Up Nation for Medical Innovation

We are first in the world for medical device patents per capita, and second in Europe for bio-pharma."I believe this is one of the most important times in the history of medicine and science and that Israel plays a key role.

How is it that Israel, with just 8.5 million people, only 69 years old, with few natural resources and minimal infrastructure, is a world leader in producing medical and biotechnology start-ups and companies and is first in the world for medical device patents per capita? Israel is surrounded by enemies trying to wipe it out. The country has been in constant war and turmoil since its founding in 1948, yet thrives in adversity. Economies as diverse as Dubai, India, Ireland, and Singapore have tried to mimic the "Israel effect."On my many trips to Israel as the national chairman of the Jewish National Fund's Doctors for Israel, I have observed the amazing life-saving and life-enhancing advances of Israeli medicine and discussed the future of medicine and science with many leading scientists. I visited the makers of ReWalk robotic exoskeleton (featured on the hit TV show "Glee") that enables paraplegic runners in London and Tel Aviv to complete marathons and spent time at Given Imaging's PillCam capsule endoscopy company. The list of amazing technologies provided by Israel keeps growing.Among the numerous people on the cutting edge of Israeli medicine and science is Eran Perry, managing director at Israel Health Care Ventures (IHCV), one of the largest venture capital funds in the country. "It's almost a clich� to say Israel is an excellent place for medical innovation," Perry said in an interview. "But if you look at global statistics, it's evident -- from the total expenditure on civilian R&D, where we are ranked first; to human infrastructure and entrepreneurship, where we rank in the top five. You can see the results in patents. We are first in the world for medical device patents per capita, and second in Europe for bio-pharma."I believe this is one of the most important times in the history of medicine and science and that Israel plays a key role. According to the newest data, more than 1,000 Israeli companies are in healthcare or life-science products, including 700 in medical devices, and approximately half are already generating revenue. I will highlight numerous accomplishments by Israeli medicine and science companies and provide compelling reasons why Israel is a world center in innovation.

From the coauthors of the New York Times bestseller Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle comes the highly anticipated follow up, The Genius of Israel, which outlines the defining factors behind Israel’s successful track record of innovation and explaining how other nations can learn from its development. In Start-Up Nation, Saul Singer and Dan Senor addressed the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel—a country of 7.1 million, only sixty years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources—produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada, and the UK? Providing an astute analysis of Israel’s unique policies and culture, and practical conclusions about how other nations could learn from its example, Start-Up Nation became a worldwide bestseller, translated into thirty languages. Now in their illuminating follow-up, The Genius of Israel, Senor and Singer study the global innovation race and present a new universal metric to evaluate where different nations stand in the quest to achieve new levels of innovation. They analyze the favorable and unfavorable circumstances that affect a country’s chance of making a dramatic leap forward, and illustrate how the world has greatly changed over the last decade. Bold, timely, and remarkably insightful, Senor and Singer’s latest work shines an important light on the impressive innovative accomplishments of Israel.
