Genesis of Hispanic Tech nation? Israel as a Role Model for Entrepreneurship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Tiny Israel isn’t known as the “Startup Nation” for nothing.  Today Israel boasts more startups  -- and more technology success stories per capita -- than any region in the world outside Silicon Valley.  And now with the leadership of innovators in government and business, the country is exploring ways to mentor, support, and invest in U.S. Hispanic entrepreneurs.  Come hear Israeli entrepreneur/investor Oded Hermoni and Forbes blogger and entrepreneur Giovanni Rodriguez -- who is leading a government-supported delegation of Silicon Valley Hispanic entrepreneurs to Israel this Spring -- as they take a candid look at what Latinos can learn from Israel’s own path to startup success.  Could Israel provide the final, real spark Latinos need to finally make their name in the tech world?  This just might be history in the making!
