From 2020 to 2021, the number of Israeli unicorns registered more than doubled (from 19 to 42).  

Israel has more startups per capita and now more unicorns per capita than anywhere else in the world. It also ranks fifth in the world index of healthcare innovation. 

We’re talking a deep dive into the Israeli Life Science ecosystem to explore how 2020 yielded a 55% year-over-year increase for health tech firms with a record $2.5 billion in fundraising.  

What is behind these record-breaking numbers? And who are the key players in this unique life science ecosystem? 

Learn about the factors that have influenced Israel’s emergence as a global leader in biotechnology, health technology, and medical device industries. 

Groundbreaking healthcare innovation in Israel
Scaling with Partnerships
Partnerships are critical to any growth strategy, though this is particularly true in Israel. With more startups and unicorns – private companies valued at $1 billion or more – per sq capita than any other country, Israel's high-tech sector continues to skyrocket. Through the right partnerships and commercialization support, the US healthcare market stands to benefit.

Over the second half of 2022, we'll explore the critical role of the Israeli and Philadelphia partnership, how it is accelerating digital health innovation, and what this means for you.
