What Now: Technion’s Way of Light onto the Nations

According to, “Tel Aviv, Israel — dubbed Silicon Wadi, which means valley in Hebrew — has the No. 2 start-up ecosystem in the world. It has more start-ups per capita than anywhere else, and it has 61 companies on the NASDAQ. That’s more than Europe, Japan, Korea, and China combined!”

The chip in your iPhone and the technology that runs Skype were both innovations that came out of Silicon Wadi.

Silicon Wadi isn’t just a powerhouse in consumer technology – they are developing world class innovations in Healthcare as well. Don't be surprised if they're the first to develop a cure for ALS (Ice Bucket Challenge anyone?) – an Israeli company is moving into clinical trials with their breakthrough.

Join us to meet Professor Boaz Golany, Vice President for External Relations and Resource Development for Technion.

Technion is a science and technology research university - among the world's top ten - dedicated to the creation of knowledge and the development of human capital and leadership, for the advancement of the State of Israel and all humanity.
