In just the past few years, Israel has solidified itself as one of the best countries for a new tech startup by investing back into its companies and drawing attention from tech giants, such as Google, Apple, and Amazon. 57 Israeli companies went public in 2021 and raised $4 billion – almost 3 times the amount raised by IPOs in the year before. Cybersecurity startups in Israel also raised $8.8 billion in 2021, more than tripling the amount they raised in 2020. 1 in 10 of the world’s unicorns, or companies worth over $1 billion, are currently from Israel.
Israeli startups are more easily able to get off their feet due to a number of driving factors. Outside interest from US venture capital firms and massive international tech companies has led to funding and even the acquisition of some startups.
