Israel has the highest number of start-ups per capita and more scientists and engineers in the workforce than anywhere in the world, making it a global hub for innovation. Over 300 global companies have R&D centres in Israel.
Given the high concentration of innovation, our delegations are able to explore the broadest range of innovation and disruptive thinking in a short trip.
Following a short 5 hour flight from London, we meet with the founders of leading local companies and funds as well as global corporates to better understand how technology can benefit and impact their businesses.
“In a very small space you’ve got such a lot of concentrated people investing in technology and thinking about what’s needed for the future – so you can fit alot into a very short trip.”
“I would throughly recommend this experience to non executive board members. It will help them to refresh their knowledge and understanding of the latest innovations, allowing them to contribute in a more meaningful way to the strategy discussions inside their companies.
Executives should think of the experience as “time out” to reflect on their business and ask themselves if they are making the most of the latest technological advances. They will see and hear many new things as they are exposed to the ecosystem which created a nation of 6,500 start ups. Many of those startups could be very relevant to their business in terms of disruption and growth.
An important part of the agenda is impact investing. Tomorrow’s world will be one where companies are not solely measured on financial performance. but also the social impact they bring. This is important for Executives and non executives alike.”
