About the talk
Amit Paranjape recently visited Israel at the invitation of the Embassy of Israel in Delhi, to participate in a startup delegation. The goal of the delegation was improve startup to startup and ecosystem level contact between India and Israel.
Israel is a small country with many geographical and geopolitical challenges. It has made amazing strides in tech, core research and startups. Driven by excellent government support, a great entrepreneurial culture, and a good industry ecosystem, Israel has become a true 'startup nation'.
This talk will be focused on understanding Israel's startup ecosystem, some key reasons for its success, and important lessons that India can learn from it.
