Foreign investors invested HOW MUCH in Israeli high-tech companies?
Our high-tech capital raising survey generates a fair amount of interest, and many questions from analysts, investors, entrepreneurs and the media. One question we’ve been hearing a lot is “exactly how much did foreign investors place in Israeli high-tech companies?” and we have been working on trying to place a number on this.
From the Editor
Is there a room for a printed directory in 2016?
Earlier this month, we shipped out the first couple hundreds of IVC 2016 Yearbook copies to members and advertisers and last week we distributed 600 hundred more to visitors at the Biomed 2016 conference. While this year's edition holds more research and more high-tech companies than ever before, and received a lot of interest from IVC members, event visitors and the industry as a whole, the question about its validity as a standalone product seems to sound louder than before.
