Episode Description

According to Dan Senor and Saul Singer’s book, Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel's Economic Miracle, Israel has the world's most start-ups per capita and the world's highest concentration of spending on research and development. Equally impressive, Israel attracted as much venture capital as Germany and France combined in 2008—nearly $2 billion. And Israel has more Nasdaq-listed companies than all of Europe and any country besides the U.S. How can this country of just seven million, and under continual military threat, be so fertile for innovation? The experts speak. Yaron Eppel, Mobideo Technologies Ltd.: “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." (Albert Einstein) Saritha Sundaresan, SAP Startup Focus, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Mead, U.S. anthropologist) Join us for Startup Nation: Israel.

Game-changing technologies are transformational, exciting and disruptive for a reason. They shake up the status quo. They get you thinking about new ways to scale, compete and grow. They move you in amazing new directions.

Take Big Data. In the last few years, Big Data has gone from buzzword du jour to making a significant impact in all facets of our public and private lives. Whether serving-up finely-tuned ads on Social media sites, or delivering better services to residents in cities, the impact and potential of Big Data are just beginning to be realized.

Join host Bonnie D. Graham for Startup Focus with Game-Changers, our series about today’s top innovative Startups and emerging trends in the Big Data space, including Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, Machine Learning, Predictive Analytics, and learn how you can grow your business and profit.
