Thanks to the guidelines of the healthcare law, all citizens are entitled to state of the art healthcare services provided by a few HMOs that operate clinics, hospitals and unique nationwide services. In numerous medical fields Israel is considered a pioneer, amongst which are maternity and IVF, cardiology, organ transplants, oncology, and others.

Sustainability

Humanity has made outstanding advances in technology, but alongside such advancement, it seems that the effects of modern lifestyle are becoming more devastating as the years go by. Companies and governments all around the globe are looking for sustainable solutions that will reduce our negative impact on the environment.

Israel has invested substantially in the field, placing the country among the top innovators in relevant industries and solutions. Innovations were created out of necessity, due to the lack of natural resources, for example, water desalination and the Netafim drip system were driven by the lack of water. Israel has recently established an enormous solar power plant with the world’s tallest solar tower, utilizing the abundant sunlight resources of the Israeli desert to transform the lack of polluting resources and provide clean and renewable sources of energy.

“A very informative and eye-opening program…from the insight into entrepreneurship in Israel. Then hearing from some of the world's best innovation leaders, and seeing this all come to life by hearing real stories. This program is a must for any budding entrepreneurs or anyone who is interested in establishing innovation and capability build in their organisation.”

“Fascinating. Different ways of thinking. Gained a greater awareness of how Israeli companies, through their entrepreneurial spirit, have carved a niche in creating global businesses, outside of the big tech giants. Then in the Face-to-Face sessions, we discussed how to bring the international perspective back to our side of the world in Australia. Looking to share key findings with my work colleagues.”
