Tech insider Inbal Arieli reveals the secrets behind how Israel, a tiny country with the highest concentration of start-ups per capitia worldwide, is raising generations of entrepreneurs, disrupting markets around the globe and bringing change to the world. Arieli goes against common belief that Israel’s outstanding economic accomplishments are the direct byproduct of its technologically advanced military, or longstanding Jewish traditions of study and questioning. Instead, she argues that in today’s modern Israel, it’s the result of the way Israelis are raised in s community, where childhoods are purposely sharped by challenges and risks. In this culture that encourages chutzpah, supports creative thinking and risk taking, children grow up and develop to have the courage to pursue unorthodox and often revolutionary approaches to change and innovation. Inbal Arieli is a serial entrepreneur and former officer in the Israeli Defense Forces. She has held numerous executive positions in leading Israeli tech companies, founded a series of programs for innovators, has led the Strategic Partnerships for Start-Up Nation Central and is currently founder and co-chief executive of Synthesis.This event is part of the Jewish Book Council. The Fife-Davis family Jewish book fair and gift shop will take place Nov. 6 – 21 at the Weinstein JCC.
