Tel Aviv joined Geek Girls Carrots!

For those of us who are familiar with Tel Aviv, we might know of it as a city filled with sun, beaches, hummus, controversies, religions, parties and many more. But what many people don’t know about the Israeli community is that it is rapidly becoming one of the most innovative tech hubs on the planet.

Vying with London, New York and Berlin, with more than 700 early-stage startups, and as many as 5,000 overall, it’s no surprise that Tel Aviv has been ranked second only to Silicon Valley in terms of being a leading tech epicenter. Big acquisitions, such as Waze to Google and Snaptu to Facebook, as well a upcoming IPO for Outbrain means Israeli startups are aspiring for big exits (and they’re making them happen)!

What’s unique about Tel Aviv-Yafo is that while it vibrates a young and energetic atmosphere, inside there is a strong synthesis of an informal business culture and startup hub that has become particularly attractive to creative industries. The true secret to city’s success is its unique DNA interwoven with their mandatory army, which brings way to their necessary outside of the box approach, precise focus and attention to details and zest to live life to the fullest. The buzzing culture amidst the hot sunny days near the Mediterranean, unrivaled nightlife, countless cafes, is feeding the city’s unparalleled early stage innovative ecosystem.
