It’s Boom Time for Israel’s Startups

Move over, Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv is now becoming one of the world’s leading tech hubs. This week alone, three startups, Interlude, Tabtale, and Stratoscale, have received funding from local and foreign investors. On top of that, Soluto an award-winning startup, has been acquired by Asurion Corporation, a US company for $130 million.

Israel is a country of less than eight million people, and their startups tend to be born global in the pursuit of scale.
