I am discovering more and more people with startups moving to Israel, not only because it’s a special place to be, but because of its startup culture.
While often termed as “immigrants” or Olim, I really think it’s something different; I just don’t have a name for it yet.
I can only describe what I am seeing and it’s this: Israel is becoming a business and lifestyle destination of permanent residency – one made from choice.
Sure, there are religoius, cultural and spiritual reasons why someone, or a family may live there.
When looking at this video, please note these aren’t 20 somethings starting up from scratch.
Many are older and with kids and grandchildren.
