Over the past few years, I have been repeatedly asked one simple question: What is the secret of the success of so many Israeli-based start-ups?
People want to know: Is there a “Waze-like” formula that everyone in Israel uses? And why are so many of the world’s biggest and most successful companies establishing their R&D centers in Israel?
For more than two decades, I - and my wife Nili - have consulted and trained executives from Fortune 500 companies in Europe, the US and Israel.
In 2012, we moved from Israel to Palo Alto, California, to be closer to our Silicon Valley clients. When we arrived in the United States, everyone asked us that same question: What is the secret? How did Israel become the "Start-up Nation"?
Whether they were clients, audience members at keynote addresses, delegates from Asia, Latin America or Europe, or students from Stanford and UC Berkeley, they all wanted to know the answer.
We told them that the ingredient that makes the Israeli entrepreneurs so successful, creative and extraordinarily bold, is the mindset of Positive Chutzpah that comes so naturally to them.
