In their 2009 book Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, Dan Senor and Saul Singer explored why Israel has more NASDAQ listed companies than any other nation but the US. The book reviewed how a small nation of a little more than 7 million people managed to become a technology super-power, second only to Silicon Valley.
A few weeks ago, the Fung Global Retail and Technology fund team travelled to Israel to meet with local startups that are disrupting the retail space and visit multinationals that operate within Israel’s booming technology space.
One of the companies that the Fung team met with was Wizer. During their visit, the Fung team got an in-depth demonstration of how Wizer leverages artificial intelligence to provide consumer research and intelligence.
The team also visited several other innovation centers and accelerators across Israel. To read the Fung team’s notes about the trip, click here.
