Tech insider Inbal Arieli reveals the secrets behind how Israel, a tiny country with the highest concentration of start-ups per capita worldwide, is raising generations of entrepreneurs, disrupting markets around the globe, and bringing change to the world. Dubbed “Silicon Wadi”, Israel ranks third in the World Economic Forum Innovation Rating. Despite its small size, it attracts more venture capital per capita than any other country on the planet. Arieli goes against the common belief that Israel’s outstanding economic accomplishments are the direct byproduct of its technologically advanced military, or long-standing Jewish traditions of study and questioning. Instead, she posits that in today’s modern Israel, it’s the result of the unique way Israelis are raised in a tribal-like community, where childhoods are purposely shaped by challenges and risks. In this culture that encourages chutzpah, supports creative thinking, and risk taking, children grow up and develop to have the courage to pursue unorthodox and often revolutionary approaches to change and innovation.
