High-Tech & Biomed: Israeli Innovation At Its Finest at MIXiii
May. 18, 2014
What do the high-tech industry, the biomed sector and Israel all have in common? A lot actually, which is why both high-tech and biomed are having a major influence on Israel and the Israeli economy.
With more high-tech startups than any other country in the world, Israel has quickly become a major breeding ground for innovation. And, with medical advances on the rise, Israel is making huge strides in the biomed field as well.
If you didn’t already know, high-tech is a huge deal in Israel. With thousands of high-tech startups located all across the country, Israel might as well be considered as the “Second Silicon Valley”. Google’s Chairman, Eric Schmidt, even mentioned that “Israel has the most important high-tech center in the world after the U.S.”
The mix of cultures and endless talent are the driving factors behind Israel’s growing high-tech sector. New emerging technologies are constantly being created in Israel and many have already had a major impact on society. Furthermore, Israel is home to seven top-notch research universities, some which have been ranked among the top 50 academic institutions in the world for chemistry, computer-science, math, natural sciences and engineering.
With the abundance of high-tech and life science advances being made in Israel, it only makes sense to hold a 3-day long tech and biomed conference in Tel Aviv. The MIXiii Israel Innovation Conference will be taking place during May 20th-22nd, serving as the first conference where tech and biomed will be featured within the same venue.
