We heard from Israeli business expert today that the last 3 months has been the most peaceful it has been for years. Then suddenly a rocket was launched from Gaza in to Israel and exploded near Ashkelon. See Rocket
One of our party was walking on the beach and heard the explosion and felt an air pressure Wave immediating after the noise.
We heard today that there are 3000 start up business happening in Israel and any one time with many 100’s being started every year. There is $16 billion US Venture capital invested in early start ups in Israel in economy of $240 billion GDP. The Govt provides $500 million in grants per year for high risk start ups.
This is a start up nation, they are not afraid of having a go and failure is not the death of any future ideas.
Next month President Obama will be visiting Israel from 20-22 March 2013.
