An IVC IA driven look into Israeli high-tech growth
The Israeli high-tech industry - and IVC-Online Database as consequence - is growing at an incredible pace. When I joined the IVC in 2004, we had a little over 2000 active companies covered in the database, we now feature more than 7,400 Israeli and Israel-related companies at IVC-Online. That’s a 270% growth in 12 years in the net number of active Israeli high-tech companies, or over 22% annual growth
