Afternoon Tea in Jerusalem Blog

In addition to my work as a business coach, one of my interests is blogging about life in Israel. This is a country full of contrasts – over eight million citizens living in an area the size of Wales. You can see snow and the lowest place on the globe in the same day. Although surrounded by geopolitical extremes, Israel has achieved a decade of high economic growth. My work brings me in contact with an array of new companies, exciting technologies and dynamic characters. Sitting back with a relaxing cup of strong tea (with milk), you realise just how much there is to appreciate in the Holyland. Large or small operations, private sector or non profit, my clients provide experiences from which others can learn and benefit.

Today, I had the good fortune to attend a thoroughly interesting webinar. It focused on trends in Israeli hightech, assuming that the worst of covid is behind us.

The webinar was hosted by the Our Crowd team from Jerusalem. They have dominated much of the start-up sector in the country over the past decade.

Let’s be honest. I assume that 99% of the people interviewed and companies featured are part of the Our Crowd set up. So be it. However, the 40 minute whizz through “what’s new on the landscape” was deeply fascinating.

Forbes have posted a written summary and it gives an excellent flavour. I was particularly interest in item 2, labelled ‘Science is for dinner’.

You can watch the whole event on the link here It is recommended watching even if you not an investor or geek. It shows what is about to happen in our lives – visits to the doctor, the food we will consume, the rapid processing of data and much more.
