Looking at Israel through the lens of technology was eye opening. Though startup culture seems like it is the same across the globe, the Israeli passion and understanding of failure creates an innovative environment that fosters a determination to make a change in the world we live today. As a student studying management information systems who has interned in different American start ups, I wasn't expecting to find this fundamental difference in the mind set of Israeli startup ventures. I was inspired by the incredible inventions and surprised that many of the apps I use everyday were sparked by the Israeli chutzpah.
