Israel in Ghana ’15: Entrepreneurship in Times of Adversity, Lessons from the Startup Nation.
Israel – with only 8 million people, no natural resources and enemies on every border, – produces more startup companies than Japan, India, Korea, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Israel has more companies on the NASDAQ than all of Europe combined!
What seems clear is that, Israel’s adversity-driven culture fosters a unique combination of innovative and entrepreneurial intensity. This remarkable and resilient country has some surprising lessons not only for the broad Ghanaian context but for business people and organisations seeking economic success.
In these hard times of economic downturn and power crisis, what lessons can Ghana’s startups learn from Israel? Our guest speaker, Caylee Talpert (Pears Program for Global Innovation), will share the evolution of the Israeli startup ecosystem, the key elements of success and opportunities for Israeli and Ghanaian ventures to connect. #IsraelinGhana #StartupNation
