Israel's booming tech community has been producing promising tech talent for quite some time now, and so it's no surprise that foreign investors have been pouring into the small country. If 4 years ago a talented entrepreneur that came out of Israel's elite intelligence unit could chose between Israel's top VC funds for it's seed round, now there is a whole new line up of investors from the US and China for example, that have recognized the potential and are making themselves familiar with the local ecosystem. Hopefully this will help Israeli entrepreneurs reach the early market traction they need abroad, as they build their product-market fit.
“I think that’s very healthy for the country because it forces Israeli entrepreneurs to compete on the same playing field as Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. You see a much higher level of Israeli entrepreneurs as a result.”
