So many stories to tell about Israeli innovation in the time of Covid-19

Updated: Apr 22, 2020

Why is Israeli innovation so prominent during the novel coronavirus epidemic?

On the one hand, the tech sector here, as elsewhere, has been hit hard by this crisis.

But this pandemic is also fueling a torrent of creativity.

So, why is Israeli innovation so prominent now?

Israeli innovation is always about finding solutions for the global community.

There are many reasons, with the culture of who the Israeli people are leading the list.

A people who choose to see challenges as opportunities. A people who want to help if they can. A people whose history has shown that necessity is the mother of invention.

A people who see Israeli innovation as being about finding solutions for the world.

Since 2015, I have been giving talks to groups about Israel’s innovation from a journalist’s point of view.

What makes this innovation headline-worthy for the global community? Why does Israel have a culture of innovation? Who are the people creating these new ways of doing something better? And, perhaps most importantly, how does collaboration with Israeli innovators impact the international community?

In the days before the novel coronavirus, I gave talks to visiting groups in Israel, as well as talks in the US and Canada.

In the days of the coronavirus, I am giving talks via Zoom. Next week, I’ll virtually visit the US and Canada to speak about Israeli innovation stories in the time of coronavirus.

While Israeli innovation news regularly hits the headlines, now, in the time of coronavirus, it is difficult to choose which stories to cover. There is so much going on!

And what’s going on is groundbreaking.

The medical devices, gadgets, pioneering tech and research will impact the global community.

Do you know how? In which sectors?

International media agencies have long reported about the goings on in Israel’s innovation scene.

The local media also reports on the people behind this ingenuity.

I, too, have contributed articles about Israeli innovation’s role in the global battle to overcome Covid-19 and am continuing to do so.

There is so much going on that keeping track of it all can be overwhelming.

And to think Israel is only celebrating its 72nd anniversary of modern statehood. That such a young country can create this continuous productivity is truly incredible.

It deserves to be in the news!

Please be in touch if your community, synagogue, church group, or business team would like to hear the stories behind some of the newest technologies and solutions being developed in this tiny country by a people who are not afraid to take risks when it comes to the global fight against Covid-19.
