Check out what the start up nation has to offer, and see the hottest examples of Israeli innovation close to home.

The 23th 'US – ISRAEL Technology event' will be held on February 2, 2017, at the San Francisco offices of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman 4 Embarcadero Center 22nd Floor San Francisco

The announcement follows:

When six of the ten companies on Forbes’ “Top 10 Health Tech Changing the World” are Israeli, it’s fair to say that Israel is not only the Startup Nation, but the Health Tech Nation as well. Israeli technologies overwhelmed the list not only with the variety of life-saving applications, but their ingenious and innovative way of doing so as well

According to the PwC Israel 2015 Hi-Tech Exit Report, mergers and acquisitions accounted for $7.2 billion in 2015, 44 per cent more than the preceding year. Total initial public offerings in the life science sector went up from $1.3 billion in 2013 to $3.6 billion last year

Israel boasts the world’s highest concentration of high-tech startups per head and almost 1,000 new companies are launched there every year*. Venture investments in Israel-based companies have not only increased in the number of deals – with a near 40% rise quarter on quarter, but they have more than tripled the total amount invested in Q1 of 2015.

This dramatic rise in investment has fueled an Israeli startups and has firmly established the region as one of the world's hottest centers for online and internet technology innovation and development.

Selected delegates will present the latest in Israeli MedTech technology : We expect the upcoming event to provide a great opportunity to identify breakthrough solutions.
