Israel: Start-Up Nation,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel's Economic Miracle (Hardcover)Anybody partnering with fast-paced, highly innovative Israeli companies, should read this book: the country's history and the cultural values, which have shaped the strong Israeli character, are explained in detail. The impact of the elite selection and training process of the (mandatory) Israeli miliary service, how it makes Israeli 20 year olds more mature than their equivalents in other countries, is outlined. One understand how this background forges decision-makers and strategic thinkers. The fast-paced, high-risk business attitude which drives this tiny country (made-up of more than 60 nationalities) makes it resiliant and explains how it continues to produce the largest number of R&D centers, as well as non-US start-up companies listed on the NASDAQ. A "must" read if you are doing business with Israel!
