Start-up nation Israel: Where women are the future

More and more women are starting high-tech businesses in Israel, site of the second-largest technology hub in the world.

The State of Israel is young, celebrating its 71st year in May, so it should come as little surprise that its technology sector, the second-largest tech hub in the world, is young as well. Israel's tech sector, like many others, has thus far been dominated by men, but as it continues to grow, so does the number of female entrepreneurs entering it with promising start-ups.

Given the youthful energy and innovation of Israel’s thriving start-up scene, Forbes selected Tel Aviv and Jerusalem as the dual headquarters for its first Under 30 Summit Global, held May 6-9. The event brought together entrepreneurs and so-called game-changers from Africa, Asia, Europe and across the Middle East for a jam-packed schedule of networking, pitching and incubator events tapping into Israel’s $22 billion tech ecosystem.
