The Nation of Israel was GlobalSTL’s initial focus. Israel, frequently referred to as “Startup Nation” is one of the largest sources of commercially-promising innovation in the world, particularly in health care and medical technologies, agritech and cyber security – areas that match nicely with St. Louis’ strengths. As the second-most active startup ecosystem (behind only Silicon Valley), Israel is rife with opportunities. A large proportion of Israeli ventures, whether startups or more mature businesses, have a fundamental business need to access U.S. markets, capital, networks and corporate partnerships. Accordingly, these companies represent serious, realistic prospects for recruitment of a U.S. presence.
