Israel’s Economy & The Ascent of The Startup Nation

Once upon a time (70 years ago) Israel’s exports were a mere $6 million dollars a year and this was made up mostly of oranges and, believe it or not, dental implants – aka “false teeth.”

This year, however, Israel surpassed the 100 Billion dollar mark and there are no signs of letting up. On the contrary, as you can see from this graph the direction is clear and the future is bright.

On the cusp of Israel’s 70th birthday, we should take a step back and marvel at what a miracle the modern state of Israel has truly become! Just imagine this graph, this country, and the positive impact it will have on the world in 70 more years (and with the advances in Israel Life Sciences we may all very well live to see it).
