Israeli Internet of things: our take on another buzzing cluster
It’s been a while since we shared one of our reports from the “Buzz Words” series – our analysis of various high-profile industrial clusters. Since earlier this month we launched two IVC Industry Analytics Top Tags Dashboards – one focusing on the Big Data cluster and another on Internet of Things, or IoT companies – we thought we’d share some findings about the latter with you.
From the Editor
Could big-data analytics reveal a “moneyball” for startups?
How do you create rapidly growing, innovative disruptive companies? Unfortunately there's no recipe available yet. This doesn’t stop investors and entrepreneurs keep looking for a manual that will guide them through the long way of building companies aspiring to become major global players.
