How Innovation in Israel Makes the World a Better Place

Recording: How Innovation in Israel Makes the World a Better Place, Mar 10, 2019


Avi Jorisch

One nation has come up with more innovations to help feed the hungry, cure the sick, save the environment and repair the world than nearly any other: it's Israel. This talk focuses on how this small country of less than 9 million people, with few natural resources, a small population, and surrounded by enemies committed to her annihilation, has become such as font of innovation. The world’s picture of Israel is defined by terror and violence. That’s not an accurate picture. There is also a more hopeful and life affirming side to Israel. Look at any of the top ten problems facing the world, and there’s bound to be someone from Israel solving it. This is the story of how Israeli technology is helping billions of people around the world. In a world that has more than its share of darkness, these stories are rays of light.
