Israel, the startup nation

Israel is known as the startup nation -Israeli Entrepreneurs are Uniquely Distinctive CHUTZPAH IN ITS MOST POSITIVE SENSE
There is a special brand of Israeli chutzpah which is a large part of the fuel that motivates and inspires the Israeli entrepreneur to think out of the box, and address issues that would, under different circumstances, fly beneath the radar. It’s also a highly positive influence, that allows the Israeli entrepreneur to properly comprehend corporate culture and function well within its parameters, as well as to be open to constructive criticism, and of course, to give as good as they get.
Eshet Incentives and Conferences organizes visits to different startups and High Tech plants in a whole spectrum of fields .
