Last week, award-winning tech magazine Fast Company released its annual  report on The World’s Most Innovative Companies. In addition to the noted 50 Most Innovative Companies and the accompanying top 10 companies in various sectors — which included a number of Israeli startups — the magazine recently released a list of the world’s top 10 most innovative companies in Israel.

Tel Aviv at nightThere is no doubt about it, Israel has become a world leader in startup success. Famously titled as the Startup Nation, Israel has earned international acclaim for its cutting-edge innovations, startups and research in the fields of science, technology, medicine and the environment.

Israel has more high-tech startups and a larger venture capital industry per capita than any other country. Many attribute Israel’s thriving startup ecosystem to its mandatory military service, immigration history, government tax policy, limited natural resources and the illustrious chutzpah characteristic of Israeli culture that sparks innovation.

Fast Company’s report lists Israeli companies that are currently at the forefront of business, challenging industry assumptions and exhibiting economic ingenuity. Each company illustrates the power and potential of innovative ideas and creative execution.
