Forget Gaza. Israel invades Silicon Valley!
Ok, maybe not militarily. But Israel's high-tech sector has been steadily making inroads into the cradle of U.S. technology for some time.
And as the website below will demonstrate, high-tech heavies from the Holy Land are stepping up their assault on California's microchip milieu via their annual IsraelWebTour gatherings.
What's the IsraelWebTour? In their words its' "the first Internet competition organized to bring 15 Israeli startups to Silicon Valley. CEO's of the chosen companies will be flown to the US for exclusive meetings with the Valley's hot startups, VC's and potential partners. The Tour will also include a Public Showcase and culminate in an evening soiree."
This year's tour ran from Feb. 4 to 7 with Israeli companies vying for major investor dollars. For more info, check out the IsraelWebTour 2008 site.
