welaunch presents in South Bend, Indiana: “Israel @ 70: The Startup Nation”

welaunch has been making the rounds, around the Silicon Prairie as of late. welaunch co-founder, Larry Turow (Indianapolis) recently presented, “Israel @ 70 — The “Startup Nation” & the United States,” as part of The Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley’s, Israel Independence Day speaker series.

In Larry’s presentation he shared the staggering statistic that in the late 40’s Israel’s annual exports were around 10 million dollars (and mostly made up of Jaffa oranges, and dentures (I kid you not)!).

In 2017 Israel based the $100 billion mark! In less than 70 years and Israel is now an economic powerhouse and leader in technologies.

Thanks to our friends in St. Joseph Valley Federation and especially to Bob Feferman, Community Relations Director.
