Invitation from Bay Area Council Economic Institute – Release of California-Israel Economic Report (Partner Event)
Exploring the incredible rise of Israel’s innovation and technology economy, its deep ties with California and the Bay Area, and the value those ties produce for the state’s economy.
We (BAC EI) are pleased to invite you the virtual release of the Economic Institute’s latest report, on the deep economic ties linking the Bay Area and California with Israel. Israel’s role as a major startup hub and source of innovation in fields such as water, agtech, fintech, healthech, mobility and cyber connect it intimately with Silicon Valley. That relationship is reflected in growing venture investment, large-scale acquisitions of Israeli companies, successful Israeli-founded unicorns and public companies in Silicon Valley, and extensive corporate and binational R&D. The release event, featuring Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll, Israel Innovation Authority CEO Dror Bin, California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, and Senior Adviser to California’s Governor Dee Dee Myers, will discuss the roots of Israel’s innovation economy, California’s economic footprint in Israel, Israel’s economic presence in California, key technologies where that activity is focused, and opportunities for the future. We hope that you can join us on October 18 for this exploration of the relationship’s key connectors and the road that lies ahead.
