Description: Start-Up Nation addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada, and the UK? With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Senor and Singer examine the lessons of the country s adversity-driven culture, and how it blends with a national ethos that flattens hierarchy and elevates informality, all backed up by unique government policies focused on innovation. The authors show how the world s first start-up nation can inform America s successes at a time when innovation has become the key to driving global economic recovery and growth. As this country reboots its can-do spirit, there s never been a better time to look at a remarkable and resilient nation for some impressive, surprising clues.
Watch Dan Senor, co-author of Start-up Nation discuss with CNBC how Israel has managed to become a leader in business innovation.
